Directions See How It's Made
- Wrap potatoes in foil and bake in a 400* oven for 45-60 minutes. When potatoes are done, unwrap and let them cool.
- When potatoes have completely cooled, slice them in half, and with a small spoon; gently remove the center and you should have a potato boat.
- Place scooped out potatoes in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well.
- Reserve a handful of shredded cheese for the topping.
- Using a spoon fill the boats with the mashed mixture and top with the reserved cheese.
- Bake on 375* for 10-15 minute then on broil, watching closely so they do not burn until the cheese is slightly browned.
- Top Potato Boats with sour cream and more chives (optional of course), and Enjoy!
