Potato Skins with Ham

I still have lots of lunchmeat! So, tonight we're having fun with ham. With a little love, you can make it act like bacon; and with bacon running as high as $7 a pound it comes in handy!

4 potatoes
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped lunchmeat ham
1 tsp liquid smoke*
Salt and pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

*(Don't have it? Use a splash of Worchestershire sauce or soy sauce.)

Bake the potatoes and scoop out the innards. Save them for another meal, of course.
Melt the butter in a skillet and cook the onions until they start to turn clear. Add the ham and liquid smoke, cook until the ham starts to get brown and crispy around the edges. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper.
Load the potato skins up with cheese, then top with the ham and onion mixture. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve with sour cream, or my personal favorite, ranch dressing.
