These potatoes are so good! I used a potato masher rather than electic mixer so mine were more chunky than creamy, but still excellent! Will be making again!! Made for Sharon123 Cook-A-Thon.

This work out great for 3 of us - I used 2 large potatoes and baked them or 1 hour at 175C fan forced and then scooped out the flesh and followed the other ingriends for the mis and spooning back into the potatoe shell but I did this a few hours in advance and put in a 160C fan forcedm fan oven for 25 minutes which warmed them through and gave them a slightly crispiness - deliciousl

Yummy recipe. Great idea to give the name of boats to stuffed potatoes. That way, my son ate one boat LOL We really like these potatoes. I used steamed cooked carrots. The cream cheese give them a really good taste. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Newest zaar tag
