Loco Moco Stuffed Potatoes

Loco Moco Twice Baked Potatoes

This final twice baked potato variation did not photograph as well as I had hoped.  Maybe my description and recipe will do the trick.  Loco Moco is a dish native to Hawaiian cuisine that basically consists of white rice topped with meat of some kind, egg and then gravy.  In this potato version, I skipped the rice and egg.  I used Spam and pineapple along with a ladle full of gravy on top.  Added to my usual mix of cream cheese, butter and cheese, this was a really hearty meal.

Loco Moco Twice Baked PotatoesI have only just begun to explore the possibilities of twice baked potato variations.  I have plans for  New England, Irish, Cajun, Italian and Mediterranean themed potatoes, too.  I will post them as I make them.  I would love to hear about any kinds that you make, too.
