Potato Boats

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Darlene Strohecker. Cooking time doesn't include time it takes to bake the potato.

Yummy. This is a nice way to do baked potatoes. I liked the creaminess of the cream cheese and the flavor of the garlic salt. My "shells" (skins) started to rip apart somewhat so I couldn't really fill them up like I would have liked to. I kinda just piled all the filling on top of the flattened skins. Still super tasty though! One of these paired with a salad and I had a delicious and simple meal. Thanks for posting. Made for photo tag.
