Veggie Potato Boats

Veggie Potato Boats Healthy Solutions Serves:  A Lot Featured Platinum Cookware: 12 Quart and Large Skillet This is a fun meal to prepare with your children.  Your imagination is all that is needed.  You pick what ingredients you place in the boats. To start, take the Platinum 12 Quart Roaster with cover and place 22-23 medium potatoes in the roaster (washed and scrubbed) and place ¼ cup water in with the potatoes.  Cover the 12 quart, turn your stove on to medium temperature.  When the TempAlert Knob reads 90 C, turn your heat to 2 and set your timer for 50 – 60 minutes (depends on the size of potatoes you are using, the bigger the potatoes, the more time needed).  Text potatoes by sticking them with a knife.  The knife will easily go in without resistance when potatoes are done.

Once the potatoes are done, remove and slice off 1/3 of the potato (lying on its side) and scoop out the large portion of the potato, leaving about ¼ inch of potato in the peel.   Place your chopped veggie mixture into the potato and serve.  The 1/3 of the potato you cut offf, save,...
