This week’s Fun Food Friday post isn’t a recipe but a cooking tip. Enjoy!
Once a month, all the single ladies on my street get together for a party. If it’s one thing all us gals have in common (besides loving to eat, socialize, and drink cocktails) is that we all love the outdoors.
Since our April get-together, Janice and Patty took their brand-new tent trailer out for its inaugural journey. They did everything right: left in plenty of time so they weren’t setting up in the dark, brought a variety of meals so they had options, and kept their good sense of humor.
But, of course, there was always the unexpected outdoor cooking event!
In this case, it was too windy to have a campfire to bake their potatoes. And there’s no oven in their tent trailer!
So, Patty, being the brilliant woman that she is decided that she make “Faked Baked Potatoes.” She scrubbed the potatoes like normal, and then popped them in a pot of boiling water.
I know what you’re thinking: that’s just BOILED potatoes. Bare with me on this one:
Patty left the skins on the potatoes and boiled them until they were tender all the way through. Then, she removed them from the water and wrapped them tightly in a dishtowel.
The dishtowel absorbed the excess water from cooking and left the potatoes the exact consistency of a baked potato!
Slather with butter, sour cream, salt and pepper and enjoy!
