Ultimate Recipe Swap: Lunchbox Love ~ Baked Potatoes

I don't have much need to pack lunches these days, but I wanted to share with you, one of my favorite lunches that I used to pack when I worked.

Whenever I would make hot dogs, baked beans and baked potatoes for dinner, I would always bake an extra potato. (I usually baked my potatoes in the microwave.) I would cut it open, mash it up a bit, put it in a microwave-safe bowl and add whatever seasonings I liked.

After dinner, if there were beans leftover from dinner I would put a scoop or two full over the potato. If there was a hot dog left, I would slice it and add to the potato and beans.

If there weren't any leftover beans or hot dogs, I would just pack the potato with butter, salt and pepper. Or, I'd pour about 1/2 a can of creamed corn over the potato. YUM!

Those were a favorite lunch of mine when I worked and sometimes I will still have that for lunch at home.

Boy, that sure sounds like a yummy and filling lunch! Much better than anything you could get from a vending machine, I'm sure.

Hi, Mom2fur! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! It is a filling lunch, even when it was just the baked potato without the beans or hotdog. I always felt so good and full after eating this lunch. Good, because I didn't spend extra money at the deli for something I didn't really want. And full, because like you said, it's a filling lunch!
