Easy Fried Rice: Part 2….. Stuffed Potatoes

Easy fried rice part 2 feature

Last week you got Part 1 which was the way I make Easy Fried Rice, this week you’re getting a way I like to put that rice to good use in a baked potato. It certainly makes a weeknight dinner a little more exciting and is completely adaptable for fussy three-year-olds (does anyone else own an Alani out there!).

All you need is some washed potatoes baked up, gourmet sausages, Optional fresh salads for the big people (I purchased mine from our local New Leaf café), if you own little food adventurers they’ll love the salad bit too and of course a batch of that Easy Fried Rice from last week.

Choose spud sizes to suit the appetites of those who will be consuming them. Zadada and I like a baked sweet spud for a lower carb option, I usually buy the biggest one I can find and cut into 2 pieces 2/3 (for Zadada) and 1/3 (for me).

You can serve a dinner like this pretty much however you like but I think it’s a lot more exciting looking at a baked potato overflowing with yummy fillings than it is just looking at food spread around a plate, Alani on the other hand likes the spread around look as you’ll see in the pictures below, the great thing is you can adapt this dish to suit everyone without having to cook 3 different meals, it really just comes down to knowing how 3- year-olds are going to react to the visual presentation of food placed in front of them (in this house at least!).

Kids Spuds

I won’t waffle on any more about this dish mainly because you know the gist of the Easy Fried Rice from last week and secondly because today which by tomorrow when you are reading this will be yesterday, well let’s just say I had a busy ‘Lady Maintenance’ day getting that dreaded 2 yearly Doctors Visit out of the way, a Blood test (which by the way I don’t do well with, I pass out if I’m not horizontal, apart from that I’m ok!) throw in a Dentist check-up to that mix and yes that was my exciting day (not)! Too much information I know…. just call me an over sharer! But seriously I think we should talk about things like this more,  I’m hoping by me oversharing my ‘Lady Maintenance’ day someone else reading this will stop and think “yes I’m going to book in for that appointment I’ve been putting off”. From me to you, just do it lovelies. I feel like a little weight has been lifted!

Now back to the Potatoes……

Easy Fried Rice: Part 2..... Stuffed Potatoes

Author:
Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 4-5 Washed potatoes (for the kidlets it was 3 standard washed potatoes, for Zadada and I it was 1 large sweet spud divided into appropriate portions) NOTE: Alani had her potato made into wedges which I baked for 30 minutes (check notes below).
  • Olive oil
  • Greek seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A tray of gourmet sausages, doesn’t matter which flavour (I bought an extra tray of gourmet chipolata sausages for the kids, leftovers became sandwich fillings for kids lunches the next day).
  • A batch of my Easy Fried Rice (leftovers became Zadada's lunch the next day)
  • 1 cup grated Cheese
  • OPTIONAL EXTRA: 2 ½ cups fresh salads, your choice either store bought or homemade I went store bought because it was a work night/school night.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C
  2. Tear off 4 squares of foil, sit a potato on a piece, drizzle about ½ teaspoon olive oil on top, sprinkle with a little Greek seasoning, salt & pepper, roll around on the foil and wrap potato to cover completely, (repeat with remaining potatoes, keeping one aside if you have an Alani, then you’ll just be wanting to cut that 1 remaining potato into wedges ready for baking).
  3. Place prepared foil wrapped potatoes on a lined baking tray.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes (if they are really small they will only need about 15-20 minutes).
  5. Cook sausages during this time.
  6. After 30 minutes remove foil from potatoes and return to oven for another 20-30 minutes or until potato skin is crisp and potato is completely cooked through. (It was at this half way mark that I added Alani’s wedges to the baking tray, drizzled a little olive oil over the top turning at the 15 minute mark and cooking a further 15 minutes).
  7. Place cooked potatoes onto dinner plates and score a cross half way into the top of the potatoes, press down a little and add your toppings, Easy Fried Rice first, Fresh Salads (if desired), Grated cheese, sliced sausages, and whatever sauce you like (kidlets did tomato and I love sweet chilli sauce).
  8. Note: if you wanted to indulge a little more pop a dollop of sour cream or Greek yoghurt onto the potato before topping.
  9. And Enjoy!

There you have it the sequel to last weeks part 1!

Got any favourite weeknight meals that excite the family, I’d love to hear about them.

More importantly, are you up to date with your lady maintenance checks?

Stay tuned I’ve got more Christmas treasures coming your way next week, they are 100% delicious.

Until then……

      Oh you just gave me my smile for the day Lucy! I’m up to my elbows cleaning out underneath our 9-year-olds bed. If I told you everything I had pulled out from there you would be very scared (not quite) but let’s just say he’s getting a stern talking to when he gets home from school about disposing of used tissues and the odd half eaten lolly! I wish I was in the kitchen baking in a perfectly pristine cleaned house. Have a great day xx
