- 2 large baking potatoes
- 1 scallion, chopped
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
- freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Scrub the potatoes and prick in several places with a fork. Bake until tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours or in the microwave on high powered for 15 minutes, turning once. Reduce the oven to 400F.
Cut a thin slice off each potato lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the insides of the potatoes and place in a bowl. Add the scallion, water, and parsley and mash until smooth.
Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells. Sprinkle paprika and pepper over-the-top. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
