Potatoes are one of the major foods in Western and European countries. They can be prepared in many ways: baked, mashed, broil and deep fried in strips - french fries - which is most common to all of us.
I'm a huge fan of french fries but afraid they are too fattening, like most women. I found some baked potato recipes that don't contain too much oil. It is easy and also suits to Tom and Cici's taste buds. To be fair to them, I can not always cook my home country's meal for them, right?
I invented this recipe from the combination of mashed and baked potatoes. Enjoy! :-)
1. 3 potatoes (about 600g total) - broil with skin on for 20 minutes or until soft. 2. 3 slices of bacon - cook until crispy them crumb. 3. 1/4 cup of low fat milk 4. 1 tbsp butter 5. 2 tsp Parmesan cheese 6. Some parsley and oregano flakes (or your desired herbs) 7. Salt and garlic powder to taste 8. Some shredded cheese for topping
Steps : 1. Preheat the oven at 350F. 2. Peel the cooked/soften potatoes. 3. In a mixing bowl, mash the peeled potatoes together with milk and butter. 4. Add in bacon crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano flakes and salt and garlic to taste. Stir to mix well. 5. Use your hands to form the mixture into a 2" diameter ball. 6. Place the potato ball in a sauce bowl. Lightly Press to flatten the top a bit. 7. Top with some preferred shredded cheese and herb flakes. 8. Bake in preheated oven for 5~8 minutes. 9. Serve warm.
