Football Eats 6: Steakhouse Burger Potato Skins
And then, when I was 20, I first ate at Wood Ranch and discovered their barbecue chicken potato skins. They were something of a revelation: it had not occured to me that the things I loved on pizza, like chicken, cilantro and red onion, would work in potato skins.
On Saturday, watching some games in the afternoon and thinking about what to make for dinner during the UCLA game, I felt a craving for potato skins. But I wasn't in a BBQ chicken mood. It was too late in the day to slow cook anything. And then it hit me: cheeseburger potato skins. After a couple of minutes of thinking about what kind of cheeseburger I was in the mood for, I decided on a steakhouse-style burger.
Just as UCLA's ass-kicking of (not very good) Colorado may be their high-water mark this season, these may be the best football eats I make. I'm not sure where to go from here. Maybe I'll just make these potato skins every Saturday from now on. (Just kidding.)
