BBQ Stuffed Potatoes & Nutty Ghosts

October 26th, 2009

I took a coupon class (shut up) last month and one of the things we talked about was economical meals. These potatoes were one of the ideas offered. I never dreamed that they would taste so yummy – Steve has requested that they be put in the regular dinner rotation. As is often the case around here, it is less of a recipe and more of an idea.

BBQ Stuffed Potatoes

2 small chicken breasts

1 cup (more or less as you like it) favorite BBQ sauce

2 – 3 baked potatoes

shredded cheese and other garnishes desired

p1000982-2Bake your potatoes. Boil chicken breasts until done. Allow to cool then shred. Mix shredded chicken with favorite BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray’s). Cut open baked potato, put anything you like on it (we used a little shredded cheese and a dollop of low fat sour cream), top with shredded BBQ chicken. Serve with green veggie or salad. Can also do this with left over pot roast or pulled pork.

This is another borrowed idea. My Wooden Spoon showed this recipe last week and I thought it would be perfect for our Mom’s Club Halloween party today. It was easy and turned out really cute – I think the kids will like these Nutty Ghosts/Boo Babies.

p1010024I used 1 1/2 packages of Nutter Butter cookies, 1 box Baker’s white chocolate, and mini chocolate chips for the eyes. The original recipe coated the entire cookie but I was trying to make enough for a big group of kids so I only did one side (minimized the mess for me as well as making the white chocolate go further). I melted it in the microwave, dipped one side of the cookie, put it on foil to dry and put on the mini chips for eyes while the white chocolate was still wet. Aren’t they cute little ghosts?

    I have made the Ghost Cookies for years and our family loves them and looks forward to them every year. Last year I also made them for Christmas and made them into little snowmen. I used mini m&m for buttons and they were really cute!
