Stuffed Potato Bar

Stuffed Potato Bar

I get this secret (well, I guess it won’t be a secret anymore!) enjoyment out of placing a delicious, large meal on the table at night in front of my husband while he and I both know I haven’t spent much time preparing the meal! Take last night – I made what is described below – I threw the potatoes in the oven, went to the store with my husband, came home, and by the time he had unloaded the groceries dinner was ready! Voila! I felt special and he got a delicious, hot meal!

The great thing about a potato bar is that you have a fix-it-yourself one dish meal. Everyone puts whatever they want on their potato. Potatoes are starches, so be sure to include some high protein foods to balance your meal out.
