Recipe by Teddy's Mommy
From Family Circle website. Since I can't review my own recipe I'll do it here LOL I didn't think this one up I found it and I would only give it 3 stars. It's decent but not excellent. Definitely an interesting twist on a baked potato, and yes I did half a recipe :-) and it came out fine. OH I didn't microwave the potatoes though I baked them for around an hour at 350 on the oven rack (no foil) I only put them in foil once they were done to keep them from making a big mess when I filled them.
- 6 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed and pierced with fork (about 3 pounds total)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 (12 ounce) package broccoli coleslaw mix
- 1 (10 ounce) containerrefrigerated reduced-fat alfredo sauce
- 1 1⁄4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- 1 pinch fresh ground black pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Place baking potatoes on paper towel in microwave oven. Microwave on 100% power for 16 to 18 minutes or until knife-tender, turning once. Remove potatoes; wrap each in foil. Let stand 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef; cook until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Add broccoli slaw; cook, stirring, until slaw is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together alfredo sauce, 1/2 cup of cheddar, the milk and nutmeg. Stir into beef mixture in skillet; cook until heated through and cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Heat broiler.
- Unwrap potatoes, leaving foil in place. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise on top. Gently push ends to slightly open tops. Transfer potatoes in foil to baking sheet or broiler pan. Season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Scoop 3/4 cup of beef mixture into each split potato. Sprinkle each potato with about 2 tablespoons of remaining cheddar.
- Broil stuffed potatoes 6 inches from heat until cheese melts and bubbles slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve potatoes while still warm.
