Twice Baked Parmesan Potato Stuffed Personal Meatloaves
Bear Mountain BBQ Ambassador Bobby Schneider of @youngjamesbbq shares his delicious dish where everyone gets a personal meatloaf stuffed with overflowing twice baked parmesan potatoes.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 1 ½ to 2 hours
2 pounds of ground beef (I like to use 80/20) 2 tbsp Whiskey Bent “The Rocks,” or favorite beef seasoning
1 tbsp Worchester sauce (or more to taste)
1 egg slightly beaten
½ cup of breadcrumbs
½ cup chopped bell peppers
½ cup chopped onion
½ pint of cottage cheese
½ stick of saltless butter
1. Take your potatoes and scrub them clean. Using a fork poke holes throughout the potato.
2. Fill your hopper with Bear Mountain BBQ Mesquite pellets and preheat to 400 °F.
3. Bake potatoes until the internal temperature of the potato reaches 205-210 °F.
While the potatoes are baking…
4. Empty all beef into a good size bowl.
5. Add dry rub, Worchester sauce, egg, breadcrumbs, bell peppers, and onions. Mix by hand until the meat mixture is very smooth.
6. Form four patties with a significant divot in the middle of your patties to place your potatoes in when the time comes.
7. When the potatoes are complete, put your burgers on your grill at 300 °F.
While the meatloaves get a bit of a head start on the grill…
1. Slice potatoes in half (lengthwise) and scoop the insides into a bowl (if you do it neat enough you can use the skins to make potato skins with cheese, sour cream, etc.) WARNING: If you do this immediately potatoes will be HOT. Use a towel or napkin to hold the potato.
2. Add cottage cheese, chives, butter/margarine, and mayonnaise to the bowl. Then, using a mixer, beat until smooth.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Add a heaping dollop of potato to each meatloaf (remember the divot I had you make earlier? Right in there.) and sprinkle a good amount of parmesan cheese up top.
5. Set grill to 350 °F and bake the stuffed meatloaf until the potatoes begin to crisp up top (about 30 minutes). Before pulling, ensure your meat is cooked to a safe temperature. By this time, it SHOULD be at about 140 °F if not slightly higher.
6. Sprinkle parsley flakes on top and serve with or without ketchup/other sauces.
