It’s been awhile since I posted a new recipe for you guys.
Partly because we were out of town and moving and remodeling and stuff so I haven’t been cooking as much…
And partly because I was too lazy (or too hungry?) to stop and take photos while I was cooking and eating.
Either way, when we got home from working at the fair for 2 weeks at a restaurant that only serves beef (called the Beef House, no doubt), Hubs and I were ready for some variety in our diets.
But…we’d brought home a few leftovers from the restaurant to use up.
So I decided to take 2 left-over baked potatoes and put them in the oven to make twice baked potatoes. (Did you know that already baked potatoes work super well for that? Well, you do now.)
And then I went a little crazy and decided to make BBQ Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Twice Baked Potatoes.
Then I went REALLY crazy and ate the whole thing all by myself and didn’t share any with Hubs.
That would make me a not-so-nice wife, huh?
I shared with him, I promise.
Anyway, here’s how I did it.
First, I heated up the potatoes in the oven for a few minutes. While I was doing this, I boiled the chicken and fried up some bacon. I didn’t take pictures of any of that because I was pretty sure it was all self explanatory.
Plus, who wants to see a photo of boiling chicken?
After the chicken was done, I chopped it up in small pieces and added BBQ sauce.
Then, I scooped out the middles of the potatoes and added butter, ranch seasoning, and some french onion dip to the inside part and mashed it all up in my mixer.
Then I put that part back in the scooped out skins.
And then, I patted it all down flat.
Then, it’s time to add the chicken.
And then I added cheese.
And then I put them back into the oven.
And then I put the bacon on top.
Make it. Enjoy. Let me know what you think!
