Leftover Baked Potato Recipes
Why should we eat potatoes?
The potato has many health benefits. They are fat free, sodium free and cholesterol free. The way they are cooked make the difference between healthy and not-so-healthy. Baking, and boiling are of course the healthy way. They are a great source of:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B 6
- high fiber
- low calories
1 leftover baked potato, chopped into small cubes
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 tbsp margarine
salt and black pepper, to taste
In a medium sized sauce pan melt margarine. Add all ingredients and cook on medium heat until pototoes are browned.
This is great served with eggs and toast. It makes a filling breakfast.
Baked Potato Salad
2 - 3 large leftover baked potatoes, chopped into small cubes
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1/4 green peppers, chopped
2 hardboiled eggs, chopped
2 tbsp mayonnaise
dash of ranch dressing
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients into medium bowl and place in refrigerator.
The baked potatoes can be used with or without the skin. The skin is the most nutricious part of the potato so for that extra bit of goodness some people leave it on. It also adds it own flavor making this a delicious, easy side dish.
Baked Potato Soup
4 - 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups milk
1 cup white onions, chopped
3/4 cup four cheeses blend, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 scallions, cut into small slices
In large sauce pan, melt butter and whisk in flour until smooth.
Gradually add milk whisking continually until mixture is thickened.
Stir in potaotes and white onions. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Mix in bacon, cheese (save aside 1/4 cup), sour cream, salt and pepper.
Continue cooking until cheese is melted. Make sure you stir constantly or you may scorch the soup.
Place soup into individual soup bowls and sprinkle with saved cheese and scallions.
This soup is delicious served with a thick slice of garlic bread and a side salad.
