Deluxe Stuffed "Potatoes"
* 1 batch of Mock Mashed Potatoes (see recipe below)
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* Genuine Bacon Bits or 6-8 crisply fried bacon slices, crumbled
* 2 green onions, diced fine
* 6 Tbsp butter
* Shredded Cheddar Cheese (or shredded cheese of your choice)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spoon mashed "potato" mixture into 6 individual ramekins or oven-safe custard cups (spray these with PAM first for best results.) Cover large cookie sheet with foil and sit all 6 dishes on the cookie sheet and place in preheated oven for 15 minutes (a bit less if your mixture came out thick and a bit longer if it came out too wet.) Remove from oven.
Add pats of butter (about 1 Tbsp each) on each serving dish. Sprinkle bacon bits evenly over each dish and then top with shredded cheese (as much as is appropriate for your taste, but not so much it spills out.) Place dishes under broiler for about 1-2 minutes (broilers vary so watch this CLOSELY!) until cheese is melted (and slightly browned if you like.) Remove from oven and allow to sit for 2-5 minutes.
Sprinkle green onions on each (optional) and top with a dollop of sour cream. Serve immediately.
If you were a fan of "Stuffed" Potatoes or Potato Skins Appetizers (I was) in your pre-low-carb days, you'll simply adore these.
