Baked Tomato Potatoes Side Dish Recipe

If you are tired of having the same old baked potato with your meals, I think you should try this old-fashioned potato recipe that was given to me by my grandmother 25 years ago.

Baked Tomato Potatoes Recipe

4 large white potatoes
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup finely diced tomato
3 tablespoons butter, softened
shredded cheddar cheese

Bake your potatoes until done. Remove and let slightly cool. Cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the pulp. Place pulp in a blender container with salt, pepper, tomato juice, diced tomatoes and butter. Blend on low speed until creamy. Spoon filling back into potato halves and sprinkle with some shredded cheese. Place back into a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Reading the title was a mouthful. We don't do a lot of baked potatoes here, but jazzing it up like this sounds yummy.

Ohhh those sound great. Not a lot of white potatoes used around here but I wonder if my mom would like to try this.
