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.

This is the recipe I promised to send. It is a bit of a task to prepare, but well worth the effort. The recipe was passed down for many generations in my husbands family who immigrated here from Russia (being Russian Jews) so, I have no idea why they called it 'German' meatballs, but a meatball by any other name...I guess! >>>> Slice the garlic into a water glass and pour 2 T boiling water over it. Mash the garlic well, then add 2 T. more boiling water. Strain through a kitchen towel, saving the liquid only. Mix together all the ingredients, including garlic liquid then shape into balls about the size of a large egg. Roll the balls in the flour until well coated. Melt enough fat to make about 1/2" in a heavy skillet or cast iron cooking pot. Brown the meat balls in the fat. Remove the meatballs and pour off all but 4 T. of the fat. Sauce and balance of cooking instructions follow next page: Ingredients: SAUCE: Add 1 qt. water to the reserved fat along with the catsup. Make a paste of the next six ingredients, then mix in enough water to get a consistency of a thin cream. After the water-catsup mixture is warm, slowly add this mixture, stirring constantly to avoid lumping, until the mixture has been well absorbed into the liquid. Cook gently until the sauce is slightly thickened. Place meatball in the pan, or in an oven-proof roaster and make sure they are covered with the sauce. Cover pan and bake in hot oven for 1 hour. Serve with mashed potatoes. (My friends also love it with pasta or rice!) Enjoy! Barbara Manhattan Beach, Ca FROM: BARBARA DAY (GWHP32A)
