Potato Skins

 I don't know about you, but I've always loved potato skins. Fortunately for me, I found a way to veganize them, so I can still have them if I find myself craving them, (which I may or may not do after a night of adult beverages...)

Potato Boats:

 Two potatoes 
 one tablespoon oil
 two tablespoons nutritional yeast
 one teaspoon frank's red hot/ sriracha sauce/ other hot sauce
 salt and pepper
 1 tablespoon vegan sour cream
 daiya cheese

 Puncture your potatoes with a fork, wrap in plastic baggie or damp paper towel, and put into microwave for about five minutes.
 Slice them longways and scoop out all of insides except about 1/4 of an inch around on all sides.
 Mix the insides in a bowl with oil, nutritional yeast, hot sauce, and vegan sour cream.  You can add more or less nutritional yeast and hot sauce depending on hot cheesy and spicy you want it. Re-pack the insides of the boats with this stuffing mixture. Top with daiya cheese and put boats back into the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until you can tell the cheese is melted.
 Dip in additional sour cream/other dressing as desired!

we bake potatoes around the fire on vacation, and then smother it in daiya cheddar, vegan sour cream, scallions etc...similar to your idea. i only get it that one week a year but it's so, so fab

I'm a big fan of anything potato! I also love the idea of adding sriracha sauce - I'll have to try that!
