Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, how about some Irish Spuds for dinner ;P

Irish Spuds

4 potatoes, poked with fork
2 T butter
4 oz. corned beef, chopped
3 T Thousand Island Dressing
1 cup sauerkraut
4 oz. sliced Swiss cheese

1.   Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.   Microwave potatoes on high for ten minutes.  Rotate and cook seven minutes longer.
3.   Cut off top third of potatoes and scoop out flesh.  Mash with butter, and return to potato skins.
4.  Top with corned beef, dressing, sauerkraut, and cheese.
5.   Bake 10 minutes.

Okay, so this is really like a rueben sandwich in a potato, but I think it looks and tastes Irish!

Ricki Jill,
Yummy, those baked potatoes look delicious.

Ricki Jill~ The only way to improve on a Rueben is to make into a potato! I have to try this even if it's after St. Patty's Day!

That is such a clever idea ... so I told my husband to make these for dinner tonight. Thanks so much for sharing!

Have a great week ahead,
