Twice Baked Potato Nests

Only I can mess up something so simple, and easy, as a twice baked potato. I couldn't believe it but I did. 

I'm attributing my last two cooking mishaps to my mind, (what's left of it) being preoccupied with school work. When I'm not doing homework, I'm thinking about homework. 

So I turned my second cooking mishap, in as many days, into something not only edible but wonderfully delicious.

Twice Baked Potato Nest

 

My intention was to make twice baked pizza potatoes, but they just fell apart. I couldn't get the potato flesh to scoop out without demolishing the whole stinkin' potato, so I chopped the potatoes up, including the skin, and put them into a bowl. I then made a rough mash using butter and pepperoni.

Using an ice cream scoop, I put little mounds of the potato mash onto a baking sheet.

The back end of a mellon baller was perfect for making little indentations in the potatoes. Brilliant, now I a nice little nest for the cheese

I baked the potatoes, again, until golden brown, then filled the nests to overflowing with the mozzarella cheese. Returned to the oven, just long enough to melt the cheese.

Oh Yeah, I'll be making this mistake again. 

And that's that
