Gluten Free and Dairy Free Baked Potatoes

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Baked Potato is an easy to make side dish. My kids love these potatoes and my son for some reason calls them potato puppies 🤷‍♀️. It is quite a simple recipe, basically you bake the potatoes and then scoop them out, mash them, add seasoning and veggies then put them back into the potato skin to serve, yum!

In this recipe, I used russet potato because it is the best for baking. The flesh is very dry, and the skin is thick, so you can bake it up crisp on the outside and the inside turns is soft and fluffy, which perfectly soaks up the oil and dairy free milk. However, you can use any kind of potato you like. Also for the topping, I have served it two ways as you will see in the pictures, one is with dairy free cheese the other is without and both ways its delicious!

I am also happy to bring attention to food safety for the home chef from my collaboration with Plate it Safe, an initiative of The Water Quality & Health Council (USA). In this recipe, I will incorporate icons next to the steps where proper care needs to be taken to prepare food safely.

Great step by step guide to the recipe! This is a great snack for me to make for my daughter when she comes back from school. She's always so hungry!

I love baked potatoes, and there's just something so satisfying to me about corn and potatoes together. Great idea.
