Potato Boats.


So I had a big bag of potatoes that needed to be used up. I scanned through all my cookbooks but nothing was calling my name so I went online. And I found this. I changed them up a little which is why I called them "boats" rather than "skins". They are kind of a cross between a potato skin and a stuffed baked potato. I first "baked" the potatoes in the microwave then I scooped out the flesh. I followed the instructions to bake the skins first after brushing them with a oil/spice mixture. I used the potato flesh for the filling by mashing them with Earth Balance, Vegenaise, Tofutti Cream Cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley and all purpose seasoning. I brushed the tops with olive oil and sprinkled a bit of imitation bacon bits before baking. They were sooooooooo yummy. They were crispy on the outside with fluffy insides. They reminded me of these frozen potato boats that my parents used to buy for us from the store. Can't wait to make these again.

This is one of my favorite things to make when I'm feeling jaded, or in need of an internal hug. Stuffed potatoes just make the world seem like a better place!
