Meat and Potatoes…..I think there was a mistake and I was supposed to be a guy. Look at this meal, in all fairness I only ate the steak, skins and some peas in that one sitting; the casserole I have saved for another time. I didn’t take any pictures while cooking but my final pictures are so awesome I can’t contain myself.

I had been craving potato skins for what seemed like weeks. It had to be done. They aren’t the most healthy thing I have made but I baked them so they definitely aren’t as bad as the ones you would get in a restaurant.

I used this recipe: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/potato_skins/

Went by the letter of the recipe, so there are no changes or tweaks to post. They were, fabulous! Perfect texture, and mouth watering.



So now I had to figure out what I wanted to do with the scooped out insides. I followed along the same theme so I could split my supplies between the two recipes. Instead of having to buy additional other ingredients I just bought a larger amount of the ingredients I was already using. yay!

I used way less sour cream, bacon, cheese and added dried chives to the sour cream layer.  I was using the scooped out insides of 5 large potatoes instead of 6 whole potatoes. I wasn’t sure how to alter the recipe for that but I figured recipe or not if I threw bacon, sour cream, chives, potato and cheese together it would be delicious no matter what. I haven’t tried that one yet because I had the skins and steak, but from the looks on M and Mom’s faces when they took their first bite it is pretty damn delicious!!!

I LOVE hanger steak. It is by far my favorite steak ever. I don’t have a knack for cooking steak especially when in a rush and in pan on the stove. I am for sure not giving any tips on how to cook meats, one day I hope to get to the point where I am way more comfortable with it. So, although it isn’t gorgeous it did still taste wonderful!!

Here is my whole meal together:
