potato boats

These next 2 posts were inspired by the food Network. It was a show on 'fun food' for kids.

4 baking potatoes
1 8oz pkg shredded mozzerella (or use mozzeralla balls for even more flavor)
2 TBS ketchup

Prick the potatoes in several places and bake them right on the oven rack at 450 degrees until they're done, about 1 hour -1 1/2 hours, depending on the size of the potatoes

Put the mozzarella in a bowl. Let potatoes cool a bit so you can handle them. Slice in half and scoop out the soft insides into the cheese. Add ketchup and mash with a masher. Once combined, scoop the filling back into the potato skins. Bake for another 15 minutes. Squirt with ketchup and serve.

The food network host, Nigella called these blood and guts potatoes... sort of a Halloween theme. We are'nt really into halloween at my house, but if you are have fun with that. It sort of took away the desire for me personally to want to eat something called blood and guts... eww! Anyway, again, the kids loved this one, and it was super easy!

Sorry I don't have pictures of these or the chicken fingers, my family ate them before I could get the camera out!!
