I have been really getting into OAMC, Once A Month Cooking and trying to get a few things done so when I get home I do not have to decide on and cook a decent meal! when you get home after 6 and fall asleep by 8:30 and love to cook it is pretty sad some of the things we will settle for :) So lets share a few tips? better than slamming :)
I always feel bad shutting down the egg when it is at peak temp and clean smoke just because dinner is cooked and we are ready to eat. So I scrubbed about 20 nice russet bakers and rubbed them with Evo and salt and pepper and tossed on the large to cook while we ate. Then When they were done let them cool a little and cut in half. scoop most of the baked potatoes into mixing bowl and add sour cream, garlic, fresh chives, cheese, I used smoked gouda in this batch and salt and pepper and butter. beat till pretty smooth and refill the potatoes. freeze on a cookie sheet till firm and wrap 2 to a package. We use the food saver thingy. now if we want to do steaks some night, and want baked stuffed they are ready just toss them on and they are ready when the steaks are.
There are always a few skins left after filling I just grated a little of our smoked cheddar on them and tossed in the oven to melt. a cold Chiller and that is a nice start to the evening. I did meat balls the other night and they are all frozen, in the freezer 4 in a package no sauce for what ever I need to cook. Julie in cold snow Maine
