Ingrediants:

4 4 fist-sized potatoes
3/8 cup 90 mL mayonnaise
1 box 1 box firm tofu
2 2 hardboiled eggs
4 tsp 20 mL mustard
1 tsp 5 mL salt
1 tsp 5 mL dill weed
1/2 tsp 2 mL cayenne pepper
1 cup 250 mL grated cheese (optional)
dash dash paprika (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Scrub the potatoes.
  2. Bake the potatoes in at 400F (205C).
  3. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. You may have to wait until they have cooled down a bit.
  4. Scoop out the insides of the potatoes into a large bowl, leaving thin shells. If possible, do not break the skin of the potatoes. If a potato shell is damaged so much that it cannot hold its shape, put it in the bowl with the scooped out potato bits.
  5. Mix everything except the paprika into the potatoes. The ideal tool for this is a potato masher. If you do not have one, a pastry blender will work.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the potato shells.
  7. Sprinkle paprika on the potatoes.
  8. Microwave for 5 minutes power. If you aren't going to eat them right away, store them in the fridge and microwave them for 10 minutes to warm them up.

Variation: Potato Stuffing

This is just the stuffing in the potatoes. It tastes the same as stuffed potatoes, but it is faster to make. It also looks like some weird goop without the potatoes around it, unfortunately.
  1. Scrub or peel the potatoes.
  2. Cut the potatoes into quarters.
  3. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover them with cold water.
  4. Boil the potatoes.
  5. When the water is boiling, turn the heat down to medium. Cook the potatoes with the lid mostly on. If you put the lid all the way on, the water will boil over onto the burner. For potato water, this smells really bad.
  6. Wait about 15 minutes.
  7. When the potatoes are done (you can stick a fork in one), drain the water from the pot.
  8. Mix everything except the paprika into the potatoes. The ideal tool for this is a potato masher. If you do not have one, a pastry blender will work.
  9. Spoon the mixture into a microwaveable container.
  10. Sprinkle paprika on the mixture.
  11. Microwave for 5 minutes. If you aren't going to eat it right away, store it in the fridge and microwave it for 10 minutes to warm it up.
