My first Mashup and it’s about potatoes and friendship quotes: how iron-ic is that! Segway to–Potato Fun Fact: Potatoes are a great source of iron providing 10% of the R.D.A. Mostly in the skin. That’s more iron-y!
Potato Skins are like a good friendship, they may be messy, but they are fuel for your day!
Only your real friends will tell you when
your face is dirty. -Sicilian Proverb
Recipes for Potato Skins and Friends -
With lots of Friendship Quotes
Main Ingredients to Spud-Buds
Best Buds: Your best friend to cook, drink and share memories with. “It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Best Spuds: 4 Already baked potatoes. Sliced long ways, with most of the potato scooped out. Leave approx. ¼” of potato next to skin. You can use the potato scooped out for future potato patties.
Mixture Ingredients Best Buds: Friendship isn’t a big thing-it’s a million little things. So true (and true of our dish, as well). Though the following are all ingredients used in small amounts, they can be combined to make a power punch of flavor!
Best Spuds: 2 1/2 Tbsps vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder & a dash of pepper
The Endgame Ingredients Best Buds:
Best Spuds: (Put on during the last 2 minutes of cooking)
- 4 Slices of cooked & chopped bacon
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup of green onions
Directions to mix the Best Spuds with your Best Bud Brush the mixture (see above) all over the hollowed out potatoes (also above) 1. Place upside down on greased baking sheet 2. Bake at 450 for about 10 minutes (Best Bud break!) This is a good time to make up a top 10 list with your bestie about friendship. Use your past experience. Example: 10. A real friend will go with you to White Castle at 2:00 am without complaint or question….Make sure you end your top ten list with this as #1: A homey will always be up to an 8 minute dance party! (see below) 3. Turn over potato (right side up) (Best Bud break!) A true friend is one who thinks you are a good potato even if you are half-baked. 4. Bake for another 8 minutes
(Best Bud break!) Dance Party!!!!
5. Equally divide up the Endgame ingredients and sprinkle over potatoes. Measurement does not have to be perfect. (Best Bud break!) The essence of true friendship is to make allowance for another’s little lapses. -Storey 6. Bake 2 minutes — until cheese is melted. (Best Bud break!) Take 2 minutes to read this cheesy, heart melting quote to each other: A true friend freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably. -William Penn 7. Top with sour cream, if desired! (Best Bud break!) The best rule of friendship is to keep your heart a little softer than your head!
