Boiled potatoes are a storehouse of energy, and generally kids love it in any form. However if you keep serving the traditional mash with a simple sprinkling of salt and pepper everyday they will get bored of it. Often, you need to think of innovative ways to serve even common veggies to kids. Here is one such exciting way to serve boiled potatoes! Hollow centres of boiled potatoes are filled with a tangy baked beans mixture and topped with gooey cream cheese. Once kids take a bite of the Beans and Cream Cheese Potatoes, they cannot resist finishing it off!

Very yummy, the dollop of cream cheese on top adds to the overall taste. Protein rich rajma balances the carbohydrates of the potatoes.
