Stuffed Potatoes --A recipe

Updated on September 20, 2012

HOW GRANDMA USED TO MAKE THESE CRAZY POTATOES


My grandma used to make these stuffed potatoes like no one else.... So I'm gonna share her recipe. Sorry granny!

In simple and easy steps, so everybody can become a 'Chef' for a day. Here we go:



INGREDIENTS

3 pounds of yellow potatoes

half a cup of chopped onions

1 pound of ground beef, turkey or chicken would help to ( personalize it yourself)

1/2 cup of raisins

Corn starch for dusting

3 boiled eggs

5 eggs blended in a mixer; store it in a large dish for later


salt, pepper, a tea spoon of cumin


2 tea spoons of mashed garlic


black Mediterranean olives



PREPARATION

boil the potatoes in salty water, no need to peel off yet.


make sure they are tender; pierce with a fork for softness.


While boiling the potatoes, get a sauce pan and:


heat oil and add the garlic, chopped onions on low fire.


add the ground beef and see the nice cooking and color as you stir constantly



2 minutes after, add salt, cumin and pepper...smelling good huh?


Peel the potatoes and get it doughy as you smash with a fork, sort of a pizza dough.


add flour(corn starch) , and get a nice volume


get consistent individual oval shape dough pieces that


you can hold on the palm of your hand.


'drill' a hole in these football shaped doughs and insert the browned beef


add raisins, a couple of olives for flavor and a chopped boiled egg


This submarine like stuffed potato gets coated in flour and

is submerged into the bowl with blended eggs.


Fry the stuffed potato on the Sauce pan until you see a wonderful tasty colorful stuffed potato.


A crispy a golden potato will make you proud!! Careful with not getting too dark.

    Lord,

    Tell me when it is published--I will buy a copy.

    Thanks for sharing your recipes. I can't share any of my Grandmother's yet---maybe a 100 more years and I will have the nerve. She was my Angel.

    Friend,

    Lord,

    That really looks good, and would be fast to make after working all day. When are you writing your cookbook? With all the great recipes you have shared so far, and with all your writing talents--I am beginning to wonder if you are not a robot. Just teasing, Lord.

    Thanks Friend,

    Bobbi

    Hi Stephaniedas,

    Did answer before, but looks like I'm having the same problem as Victoria stated. Gramma was from the South. Her recipe was a final product of generations.

    Mahua,

    The way it looks you can add your own spice to the groundbeef...don't you think so? I'm talking of an stuffed potatoe with a Indian flavor...mmm

    AEVANS,

    The real thing is yummier that a pic. Is like an empanada with a different taste; the groundbeef plus the raisins and the eggs will soak the mashed potatoes in a way that you won't stop eating after the first bite.

    HI Mahua,

    The secret in keeping the dough from breaking into a messy pre-stuffing is the corn starch. Hope you liked it as much as my hunger. Lol!

    Hi Carrie,

    just regular flour or corn starch to get consistency and the dough won't break apart. good LUCK and thanks
