Take a closer look at what you already have on hand and make the most of it. Leftover sandwich fixin's? Salad dressing hanging around? Fish out a few potatoes from that 5 pound bag and have dinner on the table in 15 minutes. Can you say double-duty? Nothing like getting a two for one out of ingredients you already have and making smart use of your valuable time by prepping the salad while the potatoes cook...

Work it.

Ham and Cheddar Potatoes
Makes 2 servings
Prep: 5 min. Cook: 8 min.

TimeSaver: Make a green salad while the potatoes cook. Serve with Garlic-Red Wine Vinaigrette from the End of Summer Picnic on the Quad Tailgate Menu or your favorite commercial salad dressing.

Pierce 2 (8-oz.) potatoes several times with a fork and microwave on HIGH about 5 to 6 minutes or until tender. On separate microwave safe dinner plates, split potatoes and fluff with a fork. add a pat of butter to each potato. Chop several slices deli ham and a green onion. Sprinkle over split potatoes and top with a handful of shredded Cheddar (or Swiss, or whatever you have on hand). Microwave each potato on HIGH for 1 minute. Drizzle with Ranch dressing and sprinkle with cracked fresh pepper. Serve with a green salad.
