Show of hands – who loves beef jerky? Okay, hands down. Another show of hands – who hates it when you almost rip your teeth out trying to take a bite of the same beef jerky? Yep, us too. We (meaning my daughter and I) are HUGE jerky fans. It’s such a great thing to take as a snack but I absolutely hate it when it’s the texture of shoe leather. It gets stuck in my teeth and feels like I’m about to punch the person next to me as I’m trying to rip a piece off. Yikes.
I baked large baking potatoes in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. Poke them with a fork to make sure they are soft all the way though.
When the potatoes are cooked through, remove from the oven. While still hot, cut off the top of each potato and carefully scoop out the inside. Make sure you don’t make a hole in the side of the potato =o) Put the potato insides in a bowl.
I didn’t really measure any of the ingredients. I just put a plop of butter in with the potato insides and started mixing. Add sour cream and ranch dressing and whip until smooth.
Cut up the Lemon Garlic Turkey Jerky.
I had to watch my daughter pretty closely at this point. She kept eating the jerky!
Mix in the jerky and shredded cheddar cheese. Scoop into the potato bowls and top with more cheddar cheese.
Bake for another 15 monutes. Remove from oven and serve.
Good luck! Giveaway ends on November 9th at midnight and it open to all US residents, 18 years of age or older.
