In the Kitchen with Jason: Ham and Swiss Stuffed Potatoes

Now let me tell you that I have never even thought about making something like this. It's good that I have a smart wife who says, "Let's make this recipe and it will be amazing." She was right.

These taste as good as they look, and don't they look good?
  • 4 Russet potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • Turn oven on to 350 degrees.
  • Clean each potato.
  • Wrap each potato in aluminum foil.
  • Back the foil wrapped potatoes for 90 minutes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven.
  • Turn oven to the broil setting.
  • Remove the foil from the potatoes.
  • Cut them in half.
  • Using a fork, fluff out all the yummy insides of the potatoes into a bowl.
  • Mix cheese and ham into the potato that you just removed from the skins.
  • Using a spoon, fill up each of the potato skins with the potato/ham/cheese mixture.
    • They will be heaping full if you do everything correctly.
  • Return the stuffed potatoes to the oven and broil for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the cheese is good and meltyish.
  • Serve right away.
You will be surprised at how flavorful these are. A special thanks to Jess' mom's neighbor, Mrs. Ranck, for providing Jess' mom and us with all kinds of wonderful magazines. This recipe came a Food Network magazine we received from her.

Please enjoy!
