Fast, Quick & Tasty!
I decided to make potatoes today because it's one of the quickest meals ever. You can stuff potatoes with almost anything and it would turn out excellent.
I had some extra Andouille sausage sitting around. Yes, it was just sitting around in my refrigerator saying eat me, and so I did.
While the potatoes and andouille cook, I grate jack and cheddar cheese, slice some green onions and get the butter ready to go.
In less than 20 minutes you have a big overstuffed potato ready to eat and believe me when I say that you will not be disappointed.
