Here’s my recipe for my twice baked and cheese stuffed red potatoes.

  • 5lbs of baby red potatoes – or however much you will need.  Remember, you are splitting them in two so one potatoe equals two servings or two potatoes.
  • 1 pint of low fat or fat free sour cream
  • 1 lb of shreddef mild or sharp chedder cheese
  • 1 thing of fresh chives
  • Aluminum foil
  • Whatever else you want to throw into the potatoes

First pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.  Take your potatoes and rinse them off then poke holes in it with a fork on the top and bottom of the potato.  Now take each potato and wrap them aluminum foil and place them on a baking sheet with ridges so they don’t slide off.  Let them bake in the oven for about an hour or an hour and 20 minutes.  Now take them out and unwrap them one at a time.

Place a potatoe on a cutting board and slice it in half so that both of the halves can lay on their own.  Now take a spoon and scoop out the inside so you get something that looks like a potato skin.  Take the insides and place them in a mixing bowl or something you can mash them with.  (I usually make an extra potatoe and mash it so I have extra filling).  Once you have all of the potatoes scooped, add in about half of the sour cream (you can add more if you need to later), chop your chives and throw them in.  Add in some chedder cheese and anything else you want to put into your potatoes.  Now mash all of it together so that you get a thick mashed potato type of filling.  Now take a spoon and scoop the mixture into the potato skins.  Once you have all of them filled on the cookie sheet, cover the tops in more chedder cheese.  Bake for another 20 minutes or until the cheese melts and starts to brown on top.  Now take them out of the oven and you have amazing cheese stuffed twice baked potatoes.  Don’t forget to come back and share what you thought of this recipe and also buy one of the vintage pink aprons for women or styles of aprons without using a coupon code so that I can keep bringing you new recipes to share.

 

Ventian Floral Vintage Apron & Crab Mushroom & Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe

Ok, I came up with the idea for these tomatoes because I was craving crab cakes and pizza but I am also trying to watch how many carbs and how much bread I eat.  Normally I would have put sourdough or another bread into the mixture, but instead I sweated the mushrooms and added a three cheese blend to make the filling.  Before the recipe though, let’s look at this gorgeous Venetian, Floral Vintage apronthat I found and will look perfect serving these stuffed tomatoes.

This womens apron from the Marilyn line is called the Venetian Rose.  I love the vintage apron venetian pattern that is used on the main part of the apron.  The neck straps have a gorgeous antique looking pattern to complete the top while the bottom of this venetian vintage apron has three layers of ruffles with the fabulous antique looking pattern and material making up the second layer.  I cannot get over how amazing this vintage venetian apron looks and they actually have a matching one for girls so that you can have a cooking day with your daughter in matching venetian vintage aprons.  This venetian vintage apron also features a small pocket on the right hand side with a patterned bow that matches the neck straps and middle ruffle to complete the entire piece.

Cheese, Mushroom and Crab Stuffed Tomatoe recipe.

I know this is what you all are waiting for. It is absolutely unbearably hot here in DC, so I wanted to make something cool and seasonal for fun. When I got to the store I found some great looking produce and fresh lump or bakfin crab meat and was inspired to make these tomatoes. This was the first time I made them and I didn’t use bread because I am trying to limit my carbs, but you could easily add bread into this to make it more meaty feeling and taste even better with a more full texture. You could also toast the bread lightly before adding it into the mixture as well.

You will need:

Tomatoes – I used regular vine ripened. You could also do small campari, roma or any type really. It depends how you want to serve them.
Crab meat – Do not use imposter or fake.
Basil – chopped or pureed.
Garlic – chopped
Three cheese blend – I prefer asiago, parmesan and fontina.
White button mushrooms
Red onion

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Now carve out your tomatoes so that you remove all of the seeds and as much juice as possible. Now chop up your button mushrooms and sweat them in a pan or pot to remove as much moisture as possible. Put the mushrooms into a bowl and add in cheese and crab meat. You can add as much crab as you’d like to taste. Throw in garlic to taste (I use 1 tablespoon for every two medium sized tomatoes) and if you want some chopped red onion. Now mix all of this together and stuff it into the tomatoes. Set the tomatoes in a souffle dish, cupcake pan or just on a cookie sheet (I like the souffle dishes because they stop the tomatoes from breaking) and place them in the oven for about 25 minutes or until everything is cooked. Now take them out and sprinkle some cheese on top of the tomatoes and place on the top rack under the broiler to get a nice cheesey crust on top. If you’d like, you can add the chopped or pureed basil around the top or place it on the side to dip in. Now you have some amazing crab, mushroom and cheese stuffed tomatoes.
