Mayflower Boat
  • 3-4 potatoes
  • ½ cup finely chopped ham or bacon or chicken or veggie alternative such as shallots/mushrooms.
  • ¼ cup heavy cream or a white sauce
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Flavourings to add shredded cheese, garlic, parsley, sauteed mushrooms, etc
  1. Preheat oven 230C.
  2. Bake potatoes with skin on for 30 minutes at 233C. Let cool slightly and cut in half lengthwise or you could just lop off the top of your potato for bigger boats. Scoop out the centre leaving a thick shell and cut removed portion into small cubes. In a bowl mix meats/mushroom and cream then adding flavourings. Fill the boats with the mixture. Place boats in a buttered dish and brush with beaten egg yolk. Continue to bake until golden brown and tender. Serve with a sail which can be a piece of capsicum cut to shape or cut out of paper.
