Baked Stuffed Potatoes

Baked Stuffed Potatoes

I really love stuffed potatoes. Crunchy exterior, delicious filling and unique flavor of fresh lovage makes you want for more. You can replace the chicken with mushrooms and lovage with parsley or celery. There are so many other options for filling potatoes that you can never get bored of this dish.

  1. Preheat oven to 230°C (450°F). Scrub potatoes, pierce them with a fork and put them in the oven rack for 30-40 minutes until soft. 
  2. Meanwhile prepare the filling. In a large frying pan heat oil or butter over medium high heat. Saute the onion with garlic for about 5 minutes until soft. Add red pepper and chicken small pieces and cook until meat has lost it's raw color. Stir in fresh lovage, salt and pepper an remove from heat. 
  3. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle cut potatoes in half lengthwise, scoop the interior out of each leaving about 1/4 inch shell of potato flesh and skin. Add the scooped-out potato flesh to filling mixture, and stir.
  4. Turn the oven to 250°C (480°F). Grease a baking sheet with oil. Fill the potato shells with the filling mixture and place them on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheese on top. Bake for 20 minutes until potatoes turn golden brown.

Oh, these look fabulous!!! I've only made twice baked potatoes for a side dish...but I'd love this for an entree!

These look gorgeous and I am happy to have a whole meal in a potato. I tend to be lazy and fling them in the microwave to 'bake' but the results from slow oven baking are so much better.
