Hey guys! Hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day! We spend it together as a family. Last year, I made fondue. This year I made steak and potatoes. Not just any kind of potatoes; twice baked potatoes. I have made these before on the blog. Of course, I have made steak on the blog lots of times. Here is a recap with some pretty food pictures.
Twice Baked Potato:
I wrapped 4 potatoes in aluminum foil and baked them for about 45 minutes. I cooked 5 pieces of bacon in a pan. I let potatoes cool a bit, then I spooned the potato filling in a medium bowl leaving the skins. I mixed in 2 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of sour cream. I spooned the mixture into skins and added shredded mild cheddar and the chopped bacon on top. Put back in a 350 oven for about 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted all over the top.
Broccoli- I cut all the florets off 2 stalks of broccoli. I put them in a pan with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a couple tablespoons of water. Then I put a top on them and cooked them on med. heat. I shook the pan every so often. It cooked about 12 minutes- still bright green and tender but not mushy. You can save your stalks to put in soup or use to make veggie stock!
