I'm not sure why these potatoes are called Rocky Mountain Potatoes, but I do know they couldn't be simpler and they are the closest a baked potato will ever get to mashed without taking it's jacket off. They're very good.
For each serving
- 1 baking potato
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon butter
- sweet paprika, to dust over
- Pierce the well-scrubbed potato with the tip of a knife or the tines of a fork.
- Bake at 350*F until done, about 1 hour. The potato will feel soft when it's squeezed.
- Cut a wide cross in the baked potato, and spread the peel back a little.
- Insert a fork into the opening and mash the potatoe slightly. Pour in the milk and poke the butter well into the potato.
- Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and a dash of paprika.
