Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, how about some Irish Spuds for dinner ;P

Irish Spuds

Ingredients:
4 potatoes, poked with fork
2 T butter
4 oz. corned beef, chopped
3 T Thousand Island Dressing
1 cup sauerkraut
4 oz. sliced Swiss cheese
parsley

Directions:
1.   Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.   Microwave potatoes on high for ten minutes.  Rotate and cook seven minutes longer.
3.   Cut off top third of potatoes and scoop out flesh.  Mash with butter, and return to potato skins.
4.  Top with corned beef, dressing, sauerkraut, and cheese.
5.   Bake 10 minutes.

Okay, so this is really like a rueben sandwich in a potato, but I think it looks and tastes Irish!

  12. Ricki Jill~ The only way to improve on a Rueben is to make into a potato! I have to try this even if it's after St. Patty's Day!
