Is there anything interesting to do with leftover baked Idaho® potatoes?
Is there anything interesting to do with leftover baked Idaho® potatoes? Twice stuffed potatoes used to be pretty prevalent in restaurants; it’s a classic that is coming back. Just take a baked potato and either cut off the top 1/3 and scoop out the inside or blossom the potato open (cut a cross pattern on the top and then squeeze the ends to open up the potato. Combine the scooped out portion with your favorite herbs or spices and sour cream and then portion it back into the potato. Refrigerate until ready to bake off (it takes about 20-25 minutes in the oven). I like to cover mine with foil for the first fifteen minutes, then pull and top with shredded sharp cheddar and place back in the oven without the foil to melt the cheese. Want to have a vegetarian dinner? Do one of these with a side salad, it’s delicious!
Try topping your baked potato with roasted or sautéed vegetables too.

Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
