    Engrossed's Note:

    This was inspired by Chef Potpie's Couch Potatoes. I went to make it and thought it was missing tomatoes...I realized I had some sundried tomatoes and other flavorful add-ins and came up with this. It turned out very yummy. I love the tangy additions with the salami. To me this is a meal in itself! You could add onion to this also if you like. I might even try it with some capers next time. Hmm...and perhaps feta cheese instead of mozzarella with shredded chicken or no meat for greek potatoes! It's so fun to experiment. This could also be made in the oven or with leftover roasted potatoes or canned potatoes. Enjoy!

      These were fantastically delicious! I actually didn't have any sundried tomatoes, but I did have some leftover spaghetti sauce (no meat). After the potatoes were cooked through in the microwave, I spread a thin layer of the sauce over them (like a pizza) and then sprinkled the rest of the ingredients. Threw the pan in the oven with my chicken that was almost finished baking. The taters browned up nicely, cheese melted, and they were so so yummy! Thank you thank you!

      Really enjoyed the flavor of these potatoes. I did change the cooking method. I was grilling anyways, so I threw all the ingredients (not the olives) into a aluminum foil packet, added a pat of butter and then grilled them for about 30 minutes. Came out perfectly! I did slice the potatoes. I topped them with sliced fresh mozzarella when they came off the grill and it melted right in. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
