Eh, not quite what I expected...

Well, I am going to cross of #50 Try a new recipe. We did BUT it wasn't what I expected. The recipe we tried was Tater Tot Casserole by the Duggar Family. I mean the little bite I took tasted great. The problem was it wasn't cooked, rather the meat wasn't cook through. *GAG* *GAG* *SPIT* (that is what I did - exactly! :)) It was not my fault!! Robby decided he was going to cook dinner. And he got in a hurry...and that was the end result. A pan full of delicious food IF it had been done. :( Now today we are going to make this from Woman's Day...



BUFFALO POTATO SKINS
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes


INGREDIENTS
4 medium (about 8 oz each) baking potatoes, scrubbed
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp hot-pepper sauce
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄4 tsp onion powder
1⁄2 cup bottled lite blue cheese dressing

PREPARATION

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Pierce potatoes in 2 or 3 places with a fork. Bake directly on middle oven rack 45 to 55 minutes until tender when pierced. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. Have a rimmed baking sheet ready.
2. When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes lengthwise in quarters. With a spoon, scoop pulp from skins, leaving a 1⁄4-in.-thick shell (reserve pulp for another use). Place skin side down on ungreased baking sheet.
3. Mix butter, hot sauce, salt and onion powder in a small bowl. Brush evenly on potatoes. Bake 15 minutes or until browned at edges and crisp. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping.

The only thing I am going to substitute is the blue cheese dressing. I am going to use ranch. I don't like blue cheese. :)
