Shepherd's pie stuffed potato skins
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour and 35 minutes
4 potatoes, washed and baked
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 onion diced
8 ounces ground beef
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup beef broth
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups frozen veggies
1. Wash potatoes, sprinkle with a little salt, and bake at 425 F for 45 minutes or until they're cooked through.
2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
3. Slice about 1/4 inch off the side and scoop the cooked potato insides into a bowl.
4. Add butter, salt and milk to the potato flesh and mash until smooth.
5. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add onion, ground beef, black pepper, salt and flour into the pan. Continue cooking until the meat is completely browned.
6. Add beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil and add frozen vegetables. Simmer on low until the sauce thickens.
7. Fill the potato peel with meat and vegetable mixture. Use a piping bag to pipe the mashed potatoes on top.
8. Bake at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes.
Make sure the mashed potatoes are mostly cool before putting them in the piping bag to prevent burning your hands. Cooking them in the oven will warm them back up and add an appetizing brown crust.
