Ok, so these potatoes are not one of the healthiest recipes I have on the blog, but they sure are tasty. I believe that life, as well as food, is all about moderation and balance. If you have balance, then you are living in the natural harmony of life. To eat too healthy is actually not healthy. Too much of one thing is not good for anyone. Look at nature, when there is too much sun the plants don’t thrive because they need the rain as well. The key to life is balance.
These potatoes bring back happy memories every time I make and eat them. My dad use to whip up a similar version of these potatoes every Easter and Christmas. I use to help him out by scooping out the insides of the potatoes after they were baked, and then putting everything back in the skins after all the goodies were added to the potatoes. It was pure comfort family cooking, but a happy memory in my heart, and one I still cherish.
What’s great about these potatoes or really any potato recipe, is that you can play with the recipe and add what you like to it. You can add more or less cheese, more or less milk, some other greens, basically you are the creator here, so feel free to create. Another reason I love these potatoes is that they can be made and assembled ahead of time and then baked up later. They’re the perfect potato to bring to a dinner party or potluck.
