Pigs 'n Taters Recipe

Description: From Pig's in a Blanket to Pigs 'n Taters. Your kids will like this. You will, too.

Serves: 6


  • 6 large Potatoes, baked

  • 6 tablespoons Butter or Margarine

  • 4 1/2 teaspoons Milk

  • 1 teaspoon Salt

  • Dash or two of Paprika

  • 1/2 pound Sausages, cooked

Preparation Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Cut the ends of each baked potato.

  3. Scoop out the insides into a mixing bowl.

  4. Mash potatoes with the butter, milk, salt and paprika.

  5. Fill potato shells with mashed potatoes.

  6. Push a sausage through each potato.

  7. Bake in oven 10-20 minutes until hot.

Note: The original recipe calls for cooking a raw sausage inside of the potato. In today's world, the extra fat is too much cholesterol.

Try hot dogs in place of the sausage. Kids like it!
