Kid Friendly Recipe: Potato Boats

As a mother of two, I'm often trying to find kid friendly recipes. This is one that my kids love and love to help me assemble. It's so important to get your kids in the kitchen with you. It teaches them so much and kids love to eat what they help make. It makes them feel so proud. It's also important to make it fun and interesting. These potato boats are easy to make and also very delicious!

Potato Boats

4 small baking potatoes, cut into wedges
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

To top it off:
grated cheddar cheese
crumbled cooked bacon
sour cream
fresh or dried parsley

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large resealable plastic bag, add the flour, cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix together well. Put milk in a small bowl.
2. Dip each potato wedge into the milk and then drop into the flour mixture. When all the potato wedges are in the flour mixture, seal the bag up and shake until all are evenly coated. Drop each potato wedge onto a baking sheet and drizzle the butter over each one. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until nicely browned.
3. Once out of the oven, top them with the cheddar cheese and bacon. Put back in the oven just until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and parsley.
