TWICE-BAKED POTATOES; THE SECOND TIME IS FOR THE MAMEY

Twice-baked potatoes; the second time is for the mamey

Mamey's texture will remind you of pumpkin or a baked sweet potato. Lets work with the baked sweet potato texture and match a baked potato with mamey in a rosier and healthier version of twice-baked potatoes.

INGREDIENTS:

1 large russet or baking potato (boniato, if you can find it)
2 tbs butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 mamey sapote
1 tbs Groovy Coconut®, shredded

Yield: 2 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus 25 minutes total of microwaving and baking

How to open a Groovy coconut

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
2. Wash the potato and pierce with a fork. Microwave on high 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Cut the potato in half lengthwise and let cool enough to easily handle.
4. Scoop out the potato insides into a large bowl. Put the potato skins aside. Add the butter, salt and vanilla to the bowl.
5. Cut the mamey in half. Discard the seed. Scoop out half the meat into the bowl. With a potato masher, mix until creamy.
6. Scoop mixture into potato skins. Bake for 15 minutes. Top with coconut and serve immediately.
