It's football time at the manor and there is no bigger game at our house than Green Bay vs Giants. I have been a Green Bay fan since forever. My Dear Honey has been a Giants fan since forever. When our two teams match up on the field it is football time - everything else stops.
For such an excellent game, we needed some excellent snacks so I raided the pantry and came up with some classic football fare - chicken fingers, stuffed potato skins and sausage & olive cheesy biscuits.
Tonight I wanted to share the stuffed potato skins with you.
You'll need 3 baked potatoes cut lengthwise in quarters, 1 tablespoon butter, 2 links of sausage, 12 slices of a good sharp cheddar cheese, some salt and pepper.
Slice open the casing on the sausages.
Remove the casing and brown the sausage in a frying pan.
As it browns, break it into smaller pieces to crumble it up.
Scoop out most of the potato from the quartered baked potato and toss it in a bowl.
Add a tablespoon of butter.
Mash it up with a fork.
Add in the cooked and crumbled sausages.
Lay out your potato skins on a baking tray.
Spoon the potato and sausage mixture on top of the skins and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
Cut 12 slices of cheddar cheese about 1/8-inch thick.
Top them with the cheddar cheese slices.
Broil until the the cheese is nicely melted.
My Dear Honey seemed to really enjoy the potato skins, but then he really enjoyed the evening. His team won. yay.
We'll get them next time. In the meantime - Go Pack!!!
