Yes, those pics and instrux are what I do. One certainly can microwave bake the potato as a first step. I prefer roasting in the oven. Then split and scoop. Today I mixed the potato with sour cream, grated cheddar, butter. Calories . Need to keep my strength up or something. Also one tiny red onion. Mix & fill potato shells, Put a little more cheese on top. Back into the oven until reheated through and cheese browns a bit. Serve one half potato for dinner with a line of Mexican salsa across the top. Reserve the other half not yet twice baked to heat and serve for lunch tomorrow.

We had fusilli carbonara and a salad with blue cheese dressing. I used Romano pecorino instead of Parmesan. It all turned out really good.

thanks kylie and pac. it turned out great. and it was healthy. the chicken sausage was simply browned on a non-stick grill pan, and just a tbsp or so of evoo for the peppers and onions.

i don't know how they get the sausage to taste so good. not dry at all as i'd expect from chicken sausage, and the nutritiinal info on the package showed it was relatively low in fat and sodium.

Tom, we buy pork sausages that only contain 1.0g of saturated fat, which is brilliant

All the other sausages we have seen contain soooooo much more fat, especially the beef ones, so that is great that you have found a lovely chicken sausage that is a low fat option
