Ribs and Potatoes

When I saw that ribs were on sale at the grocery store the other day, we had a change in our menu! I made the meat with my homemade bbq sauce and these crazy good twice baked potatoes. My two year old loved the meat and my 4 year old LOVED the potatoes. He said, "I could eat these all day long!"
Becky's BBQ Sauce
1 cup chili sauce
4 tbsp Dijon mustard
6 tbsp orange marmalade
4 dashes hot sauce
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tbsp apple cider

Mix it all together and dump it over your meat in a crock pot or lather it up before putting in the oven. Sweet and tangy! Makes about 2 cups

Marbled Stuffed Potatoes
food network magazine

4 large russet potatoes
1 large sweet potato
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tbsp unsalted butter, softened and cut up
2 scallions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheese
kosher salt and black pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 400*. Clean russet potatoes and spear all potatoes with a fork. Bake in oven for 40-60 minutes or until soft on inside. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Peel sweet potato (skin should slide off if you pull on it) and place in a bowl. Cut the tops of the potatoes off (lengthwise) and scoop out the flesh from the insides and place in bowl with sweet potato. Add sour cream, butter, scallion, 1/2 cup of cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together until well combined. Brush potato skins with olive oil and place on baking sheet. Fill the skins with potato mixture and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 375* for 25-30 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Serves 4
