We’re bring back kids cooking Monday and starting it off with my oldest son’s creation – a Philly Cheese Steak Loaded Baked Potato.
Now doesn’t this sound delicious? I have the insider scoop that it IS indeed scrumptious and is a super easy homemade recipe.
And now for a word from our kid chef, Eabs.
I was watching a “humble potato” challenge on Food Network Star Season 9 on Netflix, which challenged me to do something special with potatoes. I tried to think up my one idea for a mix of two foods. One of them was Philly Cheese Steak Loaded Potatoes. I asked my parents if I could make it, and they said yes. The idea was to mix both the Philly Cheese Steak (cheese, onions, and bell peppers) and loaded potatoes(cheese, sour cream, potatoes).The peppers gave the onions and meat some sweet flavor, and the sour cream tied the flavors together. We baked six potatoes and there was five of us. Our dad got the sixth for his lunch the next day.
The Philly Cheesesteak Loaded Baked Potato
- 6 baking potatoes
- 2 pounds chipped steak or flank steak shaved thin
- 1 medium bell pepper
- 1 large onion
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Cheddar Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Wash and poke holes in the potatoes.
- Then bake them in a 400 degree oven for appr. 45 minutes
- Heat oil in a frying pan.
- Saute' peppers and onions until soft.
- Add meat and fry until just cooked through. Approximately 5 minutes.
- Cut potatoes in half and add a layer of sour cream.
- Top with steak and onions.
- Sprinkle cheese on top.
Cooking Class Tip: Use a skewer or fork to make holes in the potato so steam can escape while baking. Otherwise you risk a potato exploding in the oven.
