We're still working on getting through the 6 pound brisket we cooked earlier in the week and with Super Bowl coming up on the weekend, I thought we'd give a manly dish a try in case we want a repeat on Sunday.
I'm warning you - there's not much to this and no recipe either but I'll tell you all what I did. It just so happens I already had the oven going with Dorie's Apple Cake taking up the middle rack, so I shoved 2 rather large Idaho potatoes in there to bake at the same time.
When they'd cooled enough to handle, I split them in half lengthwise and scooped the innards out leaving a quarter inch wall around the peel. Brushed with melted butter, they ended up under the broiler to crisp up a tad while I warmed 2 cups of shredded beef brisket combined with a half cup of barbecue sauce.
Loaded into the crispy potato skins and garnished with shredded cheese, they hit the broiler until the cheese melted and that was that. Garnished with sour cream and french fried onions courtesy of French's with a tossed salad on the side, we called it dinner. Good enough for a Super Bowl munchie? You betcha'!
Oh, in case you're wondering, here's what the Apple Cake looked like, although to be honest it's an apple/pear version and I used bourbon instead of rum. Kinda' makes ya' want to whip one right up, huh.
