Pizza Stuffed Potatoes

Hey ya'll!  Good Wednesday to you all.  We in the delta are experiencing some nice, cool, sun-looks-like-fall mornings and I couldn't be happier. 

I'm also happy to share another game day recipe for you. Unfortunately in the hustle and bustle and eating of french onion dip, I didn't do this one as well as I would have liked.  However, I feel it's a keeper.  Brandon ate 3/4 of the plate so I figured they weren't horrible.  And they look nice.

Pizza Stuffed Potatoes
adapted from Adulting

4 medium potatoes
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup red onions, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
17 turkey pepperonis
1/2 cup of pizza sauce

Poke holes in the potatoes with a fork.  Bake them in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes.  Remove them from the oven and let them cool. 

After they've cooled, cut them in half and scrape the flesh out of the potatoes.  Move the flesh to a bowl and add to it the bell peppers, the onions, and a 1/2 cup of the cheese.  Combine. 

Scoop this mixture back into the potato skins and top them with the rest of the cheese and the pizza sauce.

Bake for another 15 minutes.  Makes 8 potato skins.
