Baked Stuffed Potatoes

This is a very simple dish with potatoes baked and stuffed with veggies.For a long time I wanted to try this.And when I did ,I loved it.This can be served as a side dish and depending on your stuffings also as a whole meal itself.

Baking Potatoes: 3 atleast

Mixed veggies: 1/2 cup or more (I used corn,redbell pepper,scallions)
Red chilli flakes

Mozarella cheese


Wash potatoes without peeling.Prick them with fork and place on baking sheet.Bake for 1 hour in a preheated oven at 400F.Keep aside and let cool.

Horizontally cut little bit of the top portion of the potatoes.Discard the tops.Scoop potato from inside,making holes or boats to be filled.It will look like this.


Chop all the filling ingredients into small pieces.Saute these in oil adding salt and choice of spices.If you are using scallions as I did,add the green part at the end as they require very little cooking.Add the scooped up potato to this and mix well.

Once ready,spoon the filling into these shells.

Updated Note: before filling add little salt inside the boats,as we had not salted the potatoes.

Top with more pepper and sliced/shredded mozarella cheese or your choice of cheese/sourcream.

Broil until the cheese melts and the top is lightly browned for 12-15 minutes.

Serve as a hearty side dish.The peel /skin will be crispy and can be consumed as per choice.
