Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

3 large
russet potatoes, scrubbed
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 medium
onion, chopped
1/2 lb
lean ground beef
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/4 c
tomato paste
3 Tbsp

1/2 tsp

1/4 tsp

2 Tbsp

2 Tbsp

6 slice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Prick potatoes several times with a fork and place them directly on oven rack. Bake until tender, 50 to 60 minutes.

2. While 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.

3. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper to taste. Cook another 5 minutes.

4. Remove 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.
5. Fill 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.

***Ideas 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
