I know you don't need a recipe for this, but this is what we had for dinner last night. It's something my family loves, but I forget to make, so I'm putting it on here to remind myself! It's a great in a pinch meal that is quick & easy and can be thrown together with staples in the pantry.
Prep: 15-50 minutes
Scrub & prick potatoes. Bake potatoes in microwave (for quick prep) or cover with foil and bake until soft.
Top with any combination of the following:
Cream of Broccoli Soup
Cheddar Cheese Soup
Cream of Mushroom Soup
....Or any other favorite potato topping.
Tips & Tricks
This is a hit with my family because like tacos, wraps & sandwiches, everyone is free to choose their favorite items. It works well with toddlers because they can eat their potato with toppings, or they can eat their potato & toppings separately. For an extra quick meal, microwave potatoes and use pre-shredded cheese and pre-cut veggies.
This is an easy meal for feeding a large group buffet style.
Make It Healthier
Skip creamy soups and sour cream and opt for (leftover) homemade chili or cottage cheese & salsa. Load up your potato with veggies and lean cheeses.
How Kids Can Help
Kids can help scrub & prick potatoes, push buttons on microwave, wrap potatoes in foil, cut veggies & great cheese. This is a meal that a school age child could make independently!
