Baked potato boats – simple yet flavorful and delicious dish. Baked potatoes are scooped, filled with red bell pepper, green onions and generously topped with shredded cheese.
Baking time for potatoes in a microwave may vary depending on the size of the potato and temperature setting of your microwave; you may need to extend or lessen your baking time. My cooking time was 7-8 minutes for each potatoes because I used very large potatoes. Insert a knife in the potatoes to check if they are thoroughly cooked. While boiling a potato holes are poked in to allow steam to escape but because I wanted the skin to be intact I skipped this part as poking holes will cause the skin to fall apart.
Scooping a potato is easy – if you have a scooper perfect if not use a spoon to scoop out the potato pulp. Once the pulp is scooped out, potato skin becomes cold and hard – no worries, stuff it with the filling and when ready to eat, heat them and enjoy!!
Adjust your seasoning before stuffing the potato boats as potato has no flavor and if we go easy on the seasoning then these potatoes will taste bland. Just follow Baked Potato boats recipe and your family will rave about it.
