Potato Bombs are basically stuffed potatoes. You take a paring knife, hollow out the middle, stuff it as you please and then wrap the potato in bacon and bake it (or grill). The attempt illustrated in the photos here show that traditional method, however I have since tried deep frying the cored potato before stuffing and found it even more tasty. So far my favorite combination of potato bombs is stuffed with Velveeta cheese, but it's all up to you. It's so simple, I'm sure you'll find your own combination of potato bombs to make your stomach content. Perhaps we should just call them IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) instead (if this post doesn't get monitored by the CIA, I don't know what would.).
|FYI, the insides of the potatoes make great hash-browns, which are a nice snack while waiting for the|
bombs to cook in the oven.
