Stuffed potato boats

More then just a potato side dish

To hollow out potatoes cut down middle of your half and then make several cuts across being careful you don’t cut all the way through. This makes it easier because you are only removing small chunks. Place the insides of the potato into a bowl and cover with water. Refrigerate to use for mash potato. If not using next night drain and cover with fresh water, this can be repeated for a couple of days. Chopped onion or any small chopped or grated veg can be used. Cooked in Breville 7Ltr. If using ceramic bowl place a small amount of water in insert and sit potatoes on egg rings.
