Corned Beef Baked Potato

  in Main Dishes, Recipes

This recipe makes 2 servings.

1 large russet potato
1/2 cup chopped corned beef
1/2 cup sauerkraut
2 slices Swiss cheese
Thousand island dressing*

Wash the potato well, dry with a paper towel, and rub with softened butter. Bake the potato at 350° until it’s soft when poked with a sharp knife, about an hour. Remove from oven and turn oven temp to 400°F. Let potato cool a couple minutes. Cut the potato in half lengthwise. Score the potato flesh in a crisscross pattern and dot with butter. Season lightly with salt. When the butter has melted, divide the corned beef between the potato halves. Top with the sauerkraut, some dressing, and the Swiss cheese. Place on a baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted and the meat and kraut are heated through, about 5 minutes.
