How to Make Killer Potato Boats
- Preheat oven 425 bake or 415 convection bake.
- This recipe starts with what I call "Foolproof" boiled potatoes. I use this method for stewed potatoes, potato salad & any other dish that requires boiled potatoes.
Peel russet potatoes. Cut each potato down the middle and cut each half in 1/2" pieces. Place the pieces in a 3 quart pot and cover with COLD salted water. Place UNCOVERED pot with potatoes and cold water on burner and turn burner on high. Set a timer for 20 minutes. In 20 minutes strain the water out of the pot. There is no need to test with a fork. This method works every time.
- Place butter in pot with hot potatoes. Add salt & pepper. Wait until butter is melted. Use hand mixer on low peed to mix potatoes and butter. Add sour cream and mix with hand mixer. Add a little bit of milk and mix with hand mixer until the potatoes are smooth but not runny.
- Use a spoon to add green onions and 1/2 cup cheese. I like to use small casserole dishes that look like a boat. Spray each dish with a butter spray. Spoon mixture in each dish. Cover each dish with 1/2 cup cheese and sprinkle paprika on top of each dish. Make sure each dish is completely covered with cheese. Use extra cheese if needed.
