Twice Baked Oronok's Tubers

Oronok Torn-Heart is a little known NPC out in the lonely peaks of Shadowmoon in Outlands. The adventurers who bother to head out that way these days are usually just trying to get their achievements done or are just bored out of their minds and looking for something to do. Course that might be the same thing to some people. ~_^

I'm telling you though, when you just plow through quests without reading them more than you need to you miss great storylines like this one. Oronok is one of the few orcs left in Outland who threw off the yolk of demon bondage and now fights the Burning Legion. You assist him and his sons in helping to settle the elements of the land.

But when you first meet him, he doesn't want to help. Why? He's got a farm to salvage and protect. So the first quest that Oronok sends you on is to take one of his boars and go rootin' for tubers. These lovely tubers, like any good potatoes, have many uses. You can boil 'em, mash 'em, or stick 'em in a stew. In this case, Oronok likes to bake them. And depending on the spices they'll give you Agility, Spellpower, Spirit, or Strength! So next time you find yourself in Shadowmoon Valley, go grab a bite to eat and follow the interesting tale of Oronok and his sons.

Baked Oronok's Tubers

2 Servings | Total Time: 20 min | Journeyman

  • 2 Large Baking Potatoes
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Green Onions
  • 1/2 Kielbasa Sausage
  • 1 Stalk of Celery
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
Craft: Stabbity each potato with a fork then microwave for 3 minutes each. Slice each in half and scoop out of the center and set aside. Spray entire potato halves with cooking spray then place on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425° F. Dice onion and celery. Finely dice the kielbasa then brown in a skillet over medium high heat. Add eggs, onion, and celery to the skillet and cook until eggs are done. Spoon the eggs into the potato halves. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mash potatoes, adding a little water and salt and pepper. Divide into two portions and roll into ball. Flatten the balls and pan fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are crispy brown. When potatoes are done, sprinkle with cheese and bake another 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Strategies: If you've got extra veggies lying around it doesn't hurt to dice them up and add them to the mix. This recipe is great for getting rid of leftovers.
