Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Stuffed Baked Potatoes | The Gluten Free Vegan

This is an excellent recipe for you to use up any leftover baked potatoes.

I have a problem judging how many potatoes to bake when we have company over. I figure one per person but then I know that Levi would eat more than that so I do the equivalent of one-and-a-half per person so that those who want two can have two the rest of us who just want one get one.

Recently I hosted a small BBQ that got rained out and moved indoors so instead of cooking the potatoes on the grill I threw some in the oven to bake. I don’t even know if anyone ate any of the baked potatoes aside from Levi. Seriously, so many potatoes left over.

This recipe isn’t much of a recipe. It’s pretty basic but the great thing is, you could totally switch it up and change things if you wanted to. I am a stuffed potato purist perhaps. Or just boring. Either way the classic ‘cheddar’ and green onion combo is pretty awesome.

    Megan, these sound great! I love simple baked potatoes :) Not sure if you can get the Daiya Harvarti Jalapeno Dill wedges there, but shred a little of that over a “regular” baked potato sometimes when I want a kick. I think it would be good in a twice baked too.

    Hey how’s your kitchen coming along? Did I miss the blog post about it being finished?

    Hope life is good your way- thanks so much as always for your time, and outstanding recipes!

      Hi Grae! Love the idea of using the jalapeno dill Daiya wedge. I know we can find them at some stores here so I’ll definitely give it a try. Thanks for the tip.

      So the kitchen is functional – yay! It’s not totally done but it’s a working functioning kitchen and for that I am endlessly happy. Once the finishing touches are added I’ll be posting all about how it’s done. Right now there’s still some unfinished things like backsplash, lighting, etc. The cabinet maker wants to have a professional photographer in to take photos once it’s all done, which is kind of cool. So I’ll have lots of photos to share in that post, whenever it happens.

      Cheers and thanks for checking in! I always love hearing from the “regulars”. 😉
