1. Preheat the broiler.

2. Halve the potatoes lengthwise.
3. From each half, use a teaspoon to scoop out the flesh, leaving a shell of skin and flash or 1/4 thickness. You can reserve the scooped out potato flesh for another purpose.
4. Half each potato shell lengthwise using a sharp knife.
5. Arrange the potato boat on a baking sheet, cut side up.
6. Brush them with the Butter Buds
7. Sprinkle salt and pepper on them if you like.

8. Just before serving, broil the potato shells for about 5 minutes or until crisp and golden, keeping and eye on them so that skins do not char.
