frugal potato's

let's make the most of potato's!
we had a good little crop this past fall.  one thing i enjoy making, freezing and having on hand for busy days is....
you guessed it, twice-baked potatoes. 
for some odd reason, i over stuff the potato and always have tons of the scooped out skins left. 
i know.... such an issue to have... smile, wink.
so, it occurred to me (light bulb moment).... why? just why oh why, don't i make potato skins and freeze them with the leftover skins, instead of tossing the waste out?
and i did.  i stuffed them full of cheese and chopped scallions and crumbled bacon.  and i baked a small plate, just to make sure they were.... well, good.

and they were good.  they were great. 
they never made it to the freezer.

smile, wink, nod.

Yum, they look good! Just like the kind that you get in the restaurant only sooo much better, I am sure. :-)
Happy Monday to you!
