Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week it's a fan favourite - loaded potato recipes!
Loaded potatoes - they're a favourite for so many reasons:
- they can be as healthy or as decadent as you like
- they're so easy to make
- loaded potatoes can be a complete meal
- they're budget friendly
- you can easily customize loaded potatoes for every family member and every diet (making them great for parties and picnics - create a topping bar! )
- loaded potatoes can be eaten for lunch, breakfast and dinner (yes - even breakfast)
- loaded potatoes are an easy meal from scratch for one person
- ummmm...loaded potatoes are DELICIOUS!
