Greetings to Everyone!
I have an idea, not sure what to do with it, though.
My Mom is on a limited diet, and we have an extended family get together tomorrow night. Here's my idea, but I will ask a couple of questions after...
Take a potato, slice it in half length wise, take some out. Kind of like a baked potato skin but with more of the potato than would normally be there. She likes and can have bacon if it's crispy. Cheese is not a problem, as long as there's not too much. This is going on the smoker (my larger offset, since I'll also be doing Dutch's beans and some ABTs. My current idea is to fry the bacon first, make it into bacon bits, line the potato with that. Add some cheddar and provolone cheese. Top with more bacon bits and parmesan cheese. Each layer would be fairly thin, filling in the "bowl". I checked with her about the amount of cheese and she said as long as she doesn't eat more than one (half a potato), it would be fine.
My questions... Should I bake the potatoes first? Does this, even in the extreme, sound like people would eat it? It will be smoked with maple, if baked first for maybe an hour?
For delivery, it will be in a preheated dutch oven with the ABTs (separated by parchment paper).
Comments good, bad or otherwise would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!
