Spud Buds 

Mash Up Potato Skins and Best Friends 

Potato Skins Recipe and Friendship Quotes


My first Mashup and it’s about potatoes how iron-ic is that!  Segway to--Potato Fun Fact: Potatoes are a great source of iron providing 10% of the R.D.A.
Mostly in the skin.                                 That’s more iron-y!

Potato Skins are like a good friendship, they may be messy, but they are fuel for your day

Potato Skins Recipe with Friendship Quotes Mash Up
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty. -Sicilian Proverb
But they will also tell you that your skin(s) is beautiful!

Main Ingredients to Spud-Buds

-Best Buds--Your best friend to cook, drink and share memories with. "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

-Best Spuds--4 Already baked potatoes.  Sliced long ways, with most of the potato scooped out.  Leave approx. ¼” of potato next to skin.  You can use the potato scooped out for future potato patties.

Mixture Ingredients: 

Friendship isn't a big thing-it’s a million little things.  So true & true of our dish, as well. Though the following are all ingredients used in small amounts, they can be combined to make a power punch of flavor!

Mix together:  2 1/2 Tbsps vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese,
1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder & a dash of pepper

The Endgame Ingredients: 
(Put on during the last 2 minutes of cooking)

4 Slices of cooked & chopped bacon
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of green onions

Endgame Friendship Quote:

Directions to Spud Buds - Potato Skins and Friends

*Brush the mixture (see above) all over the hollowed out potatoes (also above)

*Place upside down on greased baking sheet

*Bake at 450 for about 10 minutes:
-This is a good time to make up a top 10 list with your bestie about friendship. Use your past experience.  Example:  10. A real friend will go with you to White Castle at 2:00 am without complaint or question….Make sure you end your top ten list with this as #1:  A homey will always be up to an 8 minute dance party! (see below)

*Turn over potato (right side up)
-A true friend is one who thinks you are a good potato even if you are half-baked.

*Bake for another 8 minutes
-Dance Party!!!!



My Bestie -
Who helped make the
potato skins & sloppy joes!













*Equally divide up the Endgame ingredients and sprinkle over potatoes.
 Measurement does not have to be perfect:
-The essence of true friendship is to make allowance for another’s little lapses.-Storey

*Bake 2 minutes -- until cheese is melted
-Take 2 minutes to read this cheesy, heart melting quote to each other:
A true friend freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.  -William Penn

*Top with sour cream, if desired!
-The best rule of friendship is to keep your heart a little softer than your head!
