Easy peasy

It has been a while since I posted here so since I am still on a mission to type up all my recipe ideas here are few that have been staples in our house lately.

Twice Baked Potato's
I found this idea on another website and I made it my own.
I make these ahead of time and freeze them, then thaw and cook as needed.

8 baking potato's washed

1C. shredded cheddar

1/2 C. sour cream

1/2C. Ranch Dressing
1/4 C. butter

S&P as desired

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and wash the potato's
Bake potato's for ~1hr or until soft. Times may vary depending on potato size.

Once baking is completed, slice potato in half, remove inside of potato and place in a large bowl leaving just potato skins.
Mash, smash and mix potato, cheddar, sour cream, butter, ranch and S&P. Do not whip.

Refill the skins with the mixture, bake at 350 for 20 minutes OR freeze, when ready to use thaw, and cook at 350 for 20 minutes.

Here is another easy one fix it and forget it

Bake Acorn Squash
2 acorn squash - do not peel
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 stick butter
Preheat oven to 400
Slice acorn squash in half and remove the seeds.
Place the 4 halves of squash on a baking sheet, add 2tblsp brown sugar and 2 tbs butter into the center of each squash.
Bake for 60 minutes or until the squash is soft (times may vary depending on size of squash)

Remove from oven stir the vegetable and the butter sugar right inside peel and enjoy.
