I don’t know about you all, but I have waaaaay too much food in the house still. I need a pantry challenge! So, I’m using up everything I have (even some of those no-so-whole-foods I have in the back of the cabinet). I think I’ll get through everything by the end of the month. Today I’m doing a Bacony Twice-Baked Potato, using some leftover TVP for bacon. If you’re a whole foodie who doesn’t use TVP, try these with Mushroom Bacony Bits or Bacony Quinoa instead.
I always seem to have a preponderance of potatoes in my CSA box, so this is a great recipe to use to make a yummy meal out of a big batch of leftover baked potatoes. And, of course, the best part is mixing up the mix-ins however everyone likes them. In this version, I left off the green onions (our strange kids will gobble them up raw, but not cooked…weirdos). But feel free to use whatever add-ins you like. For the TVP, I added a bit of bacony salt (made with smoked tomato spice blend just like the Bacony Quinoa) to make the crunchy/chewy TVP simulate bacon. Delicious.
