Units: US | Metric
- 3 large russet potatoes, scrubbed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 lb lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
- 6 slices American cheese
- 1Preheat oven to 450°F
- 2Prick potatoes several times with a fork and place them directly on oven rack. Bake until tender, 50 to 60 minutes.
- 3While potatoes are baking, heat the oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until slightly translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the beef, stirring to break it up, and cook about 5 minutes, until browned.
- 4Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper to taste. Cook another 5 minutes.
- 5Remove potatoes from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut them in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl, leaving some behind to keep the shells intact. Mash potatoes lightly with a fork, then mix in the butter, yogurt, and 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside.
- 6Fill each potato shell with about 2 Tbsp of the cooked hamburger mixture, then top with about 3 Tbsp of the potato mixture, mounding slightly. Top with a slice of American cheese and bake until melted, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

- 8Quickie-side suggestion: Toss a bag of chopped romaine lettuce with 6 Tbsp olive oil, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, and parmesan cheese. Salad doesn't get much easier!
- 9Ideas for picky eaters: This is a way fun dish to eat, so you may luck out. If not, just deconstruct it: Put a little mashed potato and beef on the side, and let him eat his cheese straight out of the wrapper.
