My photographer, Miriam Pascal, and I had a great time playing around in the kitchen as we prepared food for the photoshoots. Together we came up with this incredible appetizer that will look really pretty on your holiday table.

Ingredients

Potatoes

  • 8 red potatoes, with peel, cleaned well

Meat filling

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and shredded

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 3 tablespoons Gefen Ketchup

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Potato Topping

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Directions

Prepare the Potatoes

1.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.

Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30–40 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool.

Prepare the Meat Filling

1.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion; cook for about five minutes, until soft. Add garlic and carrot; sauté for an additional two to three minutes, until softened.

2.

Add beef; cook, stirring to break up the meat, until meat is browned. Add ketchup and salt. Reduce heat to low; cook for about 10 minutes, until meat is cooked through. Set aside.

Prepare the Potato Skins

1.

Meanwhile, prepare the potato skins. Cut each baked potato in half and scoop most of the potato flesh into a small bowl, leaving a small amount attached to the skin. (This will help the skin hold its shape.) Return potato skins to baking sheet.

Prepare the Potato Topping

1.

Add oil, salt, pepper, and egg to reserved potatoes. Mash until smooth. Set aside.

Assemble the Potato Skins

1.

Fill each potato skin with meat mixture, then spoon or pipe mashed potatoes over it. Repeat with remaining potato skins. Sprinkle paprika over potatoes.

2.

Bake for about 20 minutes, until tops are golden.

Notes:

Meat filling can be made ahead and frozen.
