Twice-Baked Potato Dinosaurus T-Rex!

Made this dish just for fun. Thought it might amuse the little one during dinner. Admittedly, it didn’t turn out looking very gconvincing, but I had quite some fun preparing the dish and it didn’t taste too bad at all. The little one managed to finish up quite a load of it too, so I guess my effort didn’t go to waste at all. 🙂
