This baked potato recipe has been sponsored by Clever Girls but all opinions expressed are my own.
When I was in college and moved off campus my junior year, I decided to skip the dining hall pass and start cooking for myself in our apartment kitchen. How hard could it be to cook food that tasted better than the institutionalized stuff they served us in the cafeteria, right? Well, turns out that while I was ABLE to cook delicious food in my own kitchen, I didn't really have the time or the money to get very fancy with my cooking. I soon discovered, however, that a baked potato was cheap to buy, took only a few minutes to make in the microwave, and when I loaded fresh broccoli and cheese on top I had the makings of a fairly balanced meal. I ate a LOT of bake potatoes in college! Too bad I didn't have space to grow them in the garden like I do now!
Since college, I never really gave up my fondness for the loaded baked potato (especially my loaded baked potato quiche recipe!)
. I have found that I prefer my baked potato cooked in the oven now that I have a little bit more time but broccoli and cheese are still my favorite toppings. I am also a big fan of bacon and a little ranch dressing when I am feeling particularly indulgent! I decided to create a slight variation on my favorite baked potato meal this weekend and assembled these loaded baked potato skewers with all my favorite toppings. If you love a good potato as much as I do, I really encourage you to give these a try!
