Baked potatoes are not hard to make, but they take a bit of planning since they take about 45-60 minutes to cook. It’s always a good idea to make some extras so you have them for hash browns or soup!

This is a fast and super flexible dish that works with almost any kind of sausage and almost any kind of short pasta. My favorite sausages for this dish are kielbasa, bockwurst, brats, or Italian sausages. For the pasta, I’ve had great results using farfalle, rigatoni, penne, cavatappi and campanelle pasta!
My Mom used to make these thin, crepe-like pancakes when we were kids and we would scarf a dozen or more each. That kept HER busy and us kids happy. In those days, our favorite fillings were different types of jams – apricot, raspberry, strawberry – whatever was on hand. Then, we’d drizzle them with maple syrup. Although my Dad was more a Karo syrup kind of guy.
Now, decades later, I still use exactly the same recipe for the pancakes, but I prefer fruit fillings – bananas, peaches, or berries. And I still drizzle ’em with maple syrup!
