The Queens Potatoes

This is what you need
4 medium tomatoes
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and chopped
8 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup diced onion
1 egg, tempered (mixed with potatoes after mashed)
½ cup mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese (or your favorite cheese)

Get it done-
Cut tomatoes in half and scoop out seeds and pulp, invert to drain.
Place potatoes in salted water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, approximately 14 – 16 minutes.
Melt 8 tablespoons of butter in a skillet and sauté onions until they are translucent. Add garlic and continue cooking until garlic is fragrant.
When potatoes are ready, drain and return to pan, shake in a pan over medium heat until potatoes are dry. Mash potatoes and then add butter, onion mixture, tempered egg, mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Blot the inside of the tomatoes with a paper towel and salt and pepper inside of tomatoes. Pipe potatoes into tomatoes, place in lined broiling pan and bake in a preheat 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Add parmesan cheese and return to oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
