Cheesy Stuffed Potatoes with Savory Beef Filling


For the Potatoes:
– 3 large potatoes (approximately 900 grams)
– 300 grams cheddar cheese
– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (20 ml)
– Salt (4 grams)

For the Beef Filling:
– 500 grams ground beef
– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (20 ml)
– 1 onion, finely chopped
– 3 green peppers, finely chopped
– 3 cloves of garlic, minced
– 2 tablespoons tomato sauce (25 grams)
– 1 teaspoon tomato paste (20 grams)
– Paprika, black pepper, cumin, thyme, and salt, to taste
– 3-4 sprigs of parsley, chopped


1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).

2. Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt.

3. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato to create a stable base. Slice off the top as well to make a “lid.”

4. Scoop out the flesh from the potatoes, leaving about a 1/4-inch (0.5 cm) border. Save the scooped-out potato flesh for later.

5. Rub the potato shells with vegetable oil and sprinkle them with a pinch of salt.

6. Place the prepared potato shells on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until they are partially cooked and the edges are slightly crispy.

7. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the beef filling:
– In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
– Add finely chopped onion, green peppers, and minced garlic. Sauté until they are softened.
– Add the ground beef and cook until it’s browned and cooked through.
– Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, and season with paprika, black pepper, cumin, thyme, and salt according to your taste.
– Add the chopped parsley and mix well.
