Food Challenge: From Ordinary to Orignal

Food Challenge:
Make something bigger or better from something you normally have.

We often have baked potatoes for dinner and sometimes, baked potatoes just seem plain or ordinary to us. Of course there is always a stuffed baked potato option for dinner and that can range from having chili, broccoli and taco meat a top this ordinary spud. However, I have to admit that I have never tried my baked potato with Alfredo sauce covering the veggies and grilled chicken, what a treat! This idea came from my favorite restaurant Claim Jumper. They have what they call a Giant Stuffed Baker on their menu and making it at home was not a hard thing. So, try something new from something old or something original from something ordinary for this month's food challenge.

Giant Stuffed Baker Imitation
from Claim Jumper:

Giant Baker Potatoes (Idaho Potatoes are always nice ;)
Grilled or baked chicken (shredded or diced)
Steamed Veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, etc.
Alfredo Sauce- I used Heather C.'s Alfredo sauce recipe (click Here)
I topped it with bacon bits, dried red peppers, and chives.
