I love making recipes with potatoes.  They are so versatile and are like a blank canvas; they go well with almost any flavor! In our house we always have a plethora of potatoes and we always make them every night for dinner, either baked whole or cut into fries.I knew I needed to use up the can of opened chickpeas in the back of the fridge, but I just wasn’t sure what to make with them.

A light bulb went off in my head, “how bout Falfels?”  But I don’t like making plain and simple recipes, I like to innovate and change them so they are unique.  So I combined the idea of the double-stuffed potato and the falafel to make falafel stuffed potatoes!  Wohoo!  Im a genius right?
