Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

main dish, beef

2 tablespoon buttermilk
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 lb lean ground beef
1 cup pizza sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 pinch salt
1 cup skim-milk mozzarella, shred

Pizza filling: In nonstick skillet, brown beef over medium heat, breaking up meat with spoon, about 3 minutes. Drain off fat; stir in pizza sauce, oregano, pepper and salt. Let cool. Crust: In measure, combine yeast with 1 tb warm water; let stand for 10 minutes. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in yeast mixture and buttermilk. On floured surface, knead just until dough holds together; divide into 8 pieces. Roll out each piece into 6-inch circle. Place 2 heaping tb of filling on half of each circle of dough. Sprinkle 2 tb mozzarella over each mound of filling. Moisten edges of dough with water; fold dough over to make half-moon shapes, sealing edges firmly with fork or fluting edges decoratively [there is a plastic kitchen device that will do all of this for you - currently on TV infomercials [1995-6].] Brush tops with buttermilk. Place on ungreased baking sheet; bake in 350F 180C oven for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Variations: Curry Filling: In nonstick skillet over medium heat, brown 1/2 lb ground turkey for 3 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup each diced onion, diced potato and frozen peas, 1/2 cup water, 1 tb curry powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 12-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in 2 tb chutney. Let cool.
