Last night was one of those I-really-just-wanna-order-a-pizza-nights. Cody and I were both exhausted from an only mediocre night of sleep the night before. (We both never sleep well when camping.) I resisted though and decided to whip up what was “on the menu” instead. It motivated me to know that what I’d be cooking is a favorite meal of mine: salmon twice-baked potatoes. While preparing it, I realized I forgot how simple the meal actually is to make.
Salmon Twice-Baked Potatoes
4 medium russett potatoes
4-5 oz. cooked salmon (smoked, canned, baked)
1/2 cup fat free sour cream or plain yogurt
1/3 cup fat free milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup favorite cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake potatoes in oven for about an hour (or the microwave to make it faster). Cut baked potatoes in half. Scoop out pulp of potato being careful not to rip the skin of the potato. Put the pulp in a mixing bowl along with the sour cream, milk, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Fill each potato skin shell with mixture. Top with cheese. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes. Makes 4 servings (1 whole potato=1 serving)
Pair these delicious spuds with your favorite vegetable, and you’ve got yourself a winner meal!
I’m off to get in a quick workout and then church! Have a great Sunday!
