Stuffed Baked Potato Skins

TNT Stuffed Baked Potato Skins.

Ok I re-made the recipe and I think this is the winner.
It got a 10 from the old man and they looked beautiful and tasted
fab. So here's my final work on this recipe. I am satisfied with it now.

Just like Stuffed Baked Potatoes.

These were a big winner at our house.
I am going to try and freeze 3 halves to see what they are like.

Low Carb Stuffed Baked Potatoes
I tweaked another recipe.
We love these and they are worth making.

Use small potatoes. I got 9 halves fully stuffed.

5 potatoes, scrubbed well. Bake in microwave. Don't
overcook. Cool completely. Half & core the potatoes with
a sharp small knife almost down to the skin. Leave a little
potato not much. You want the skins to hold together.
Give the potatoes to the neighbor.

Steam 16 oz. fresh cauliflower for about 8 minutes.
Cool.

Mix 6 oz. cheddar or Colby/Jack cheese grated, with
6 oz. of cream cheese cubed.

4 large green onions, sliced thin and added to cheese mixture.

Mash cauliflower with any implement you wish until like
mashed potatoes with a few lumps, a pat of butter, salt
and pepper.

Fill the potato skins with cauliflower. Place in 9"x13" Pam sprayed baking pan. Add the cheese mixture atop each potato.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until cheese is melted
and bubbly.

Crisp bacon can be added to the tops if you wish.

So... are you eating the skin? How many carbs in a potato skin anyway?

I do the same thing with mashed cauliflower and cheese and bacon bits, but just put it in a pie pan and bake it that way.

My DD's boyfriend was about to help himself to a serving and my DD yelled "WATCH OUT! THAT'S CAULIFLOWER!" to him... like it might HURT him or something
BF says "Geez, you have to really watch your food in this house. NOTHING is what it looks like!!"

According to the USDA site, one baked potato skin that weighs 2 ounces has 27 carbs and about 4 1/2 grams of fiber. I have no idea how big a potato would be that has 2 ounces of skin.

pity...i love crispy skins.

i used to bake 4 big potatos at once for at least 3 hours. Then i would cut them down the middle, and apply a generous dollop of sour cream to each. You could hear the crunch sound it made in Beijing. Let us hope I shall never repeat that experience again!!! FF

The amount of carbs in potato skins has been discussed before but I don't think anybody came up with a definitive answer:

Here:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...o-skins-2.html



Probably not the best low-carb option but maybe for an indulgence now and then. Potatoes are one of the things I will use a bit of now and then in cooking. I read a tip on here to use 1-2 tbs instant mashed potatoes in the Loaded Baked Cauliflower and that makes a big difference in taste and texture. My husband wouldn't touch that dish until I started adding that and now he asks for it. I will sometimes add a small potato to vegetable soup or stew but mostly use turnips but it seems as if that small addition helps the flavor and makes the turnips less noticeable.
