Creamy Stuffed Potatoes

2 large baking potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
salt, pepper
1 cup any of the following, your choice: Cooked broccoli, chopped
spinach, carrots or peas, tuna, dried beef, cubed cooked chicken
or ham, or whatever you think sounds good, or a combination
A sprinkling of shredded cheese for topping, if desired

Scrub and prick the potatoes. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to one
hour, until tender when squeezed or pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, make a white sauce by melting the butter in a saucepan and stirring in the flour. Continue to stir over medium heat until the mixture is bubbly, but don't let the flour burn. Add the milk gradually, stirring or whisking all the while, until the consistency is as thick and creamy as you like. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Add veggies and/or meat, reduce heat to low and keep warm until the potatoes are done. When they are baked, place each on a serving plate or shallow bowl. Make an "x" on the top with a knife and squeeze the sides with both hands to "fluff up" the potato. Top each with creamy sauce mixture and a sprinkling of cheese, if desired.

Roasted Potatoes

Let me just preface this recipe by saying I am the biggest fan of FETA cheese. If you have not tried it, go out today and get you some. It is wonderful! okay here is my new favorite way to eat potatoes.

6 small red potatoes
4 oz feta cheese
3 cloves of garlic
3 T of dill weed
Olive Oil

1. Slice red potatoes thin (using a mandoline is the easiest if you have one)
2. Place in a small baker with lid
3. Press garlic on top, drizzle with olive oil and dill weed.
4. Cook 350 for about 30 minutes (or until potatoes are tender)
5. Remove from oven and sprinkle feta cheese then re cover and let sit for about 10 minutes.

These are soooo gooood!!

Let me know if you try them and what you think.
Until we "meat" again, break an "egg"
