  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place well scrubbed potatoes and squash halves (cut side down) on a cookie sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes.
  • Cut potatoes in half and scoop out the white flesh into a large bowl leaving a small amount against the skin. Reserve skins for later.
  • Scoop the soft cooked flesh of the squash into the bowl with the potatoes.
  • Mash (not whip) the potato and squash until blended. Add in the butter and stir until melted. Add the buttermilk, chives and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Set oven to broil.
  • Take the reserved potato skins and place them on another baking sheet. Fill skins with the squash-potato mixture. Place pan under the broiler and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until the tops of the stuffed potatoes begin to brown.

  1. The addition of the squash makes this a little bit different from other stuffed baked potato recipes that I have tried. A big hit with my family.


<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
