Baked Potatoes With Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Baked Potatoes With Brussels Sprouts

Although it takes an hour for a potato to bake, I still consider baked potatoes a quick and simple meal. Why? Because they require virtually no work. All you have to do is throw them in the oven and wait.

Because of the special and flavorful topping — bacon! Brussels sprouts! sour cream! — this recipe, however, involves a small amount of cooking.

It's worth the extra effort; with their veggie, pork, and dairy components, these loaded baked potatoes are a meal in themselves. To take a look at the recipe,

Baked Potatoes With Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Recipe 2009-10-27 12:32:44

Ingredients

4 large baking potatoes
12 slices bacon
8 to 10 fresh sage leaves, roughly torn
3/4 cup golden raisins
2 cups Brussels sprouts
1/2 cup sour cream
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes, then prick them all over with a fork. Set on middle rack of oven and bake 1 hour, or until the potatoes feel soft when gently squeezed and the skin is crispy.
  3. In a medium frying pan, over medium heat, cook the bacon until just crisp. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
  4. Discard all but 1/4 cup of the bacon fat and return the pan to the burner over medium heat. Add the sage and sauté until just sizzling. Add the raisins and Brussels sprouts and stir until warm.
  5. Slice the top of each potato down the center lenghtwise and squeeze gently to loosen the inside. Spoon some of the Brussels sprout mixture over each potato and lay 3 slices of the bacon on top. Add a dollop of the sour cream to each and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.

Serves 4.

I also do my baked potatoes in the microwave. Wash, stab, and then I rub the skins with a bit of sea salt, which seems to absorb some of the moisture. Five or 10 minutes later, done!

I do mine exaclty like Vanonymous. I usually don't have time to bake them in the oven, the only difference in the microwave is the skin doesn't crisp up as much. Brussels sprouts on a potato though? Not sure about that...although I do eat them with tuna, mayo and corn (unbelievably popular in the UK - I gagged when I first saw it, but actually like it now).

I always make baked potatoes in the microwave. Stab them with a fork a few times, wrap them in a paper towel and microwave for 5 -7 min. Good enough for me!
