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.

2 tablespoon butter, margarine
2 onions, medium; peeled and
1 minced finely
1/2 lb mushrooms; fresh, minced
1 tablespoon lemon rind; grated
2 tablespoon bread crumbs; unflavored

1 salt,pepper,thyme-grnd,flour
4 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 cup water, warm
2 garlic cloves; medium,
1 peeled and crushed
2 tablespoon mustard; white dijon,prepared

To Cook: In a heavy skillet, over medium-low heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and saute the onion and mushrooms until the onion is translucent. Stir in the lemon rind, bread crumbs, parsley, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. When the parsley has wilted ~ about 1 minute after you add it to the skillet - quickly stir in the eggs to bind the mixture and remove skillet from the heat at once. Set aside. With a rolling pin or a wooden mallet, flatten the beef pieces until each is very thin and about twice its original size. As you finish each piece, season it with a little salt, pepper, and a pinch of thyme. At the widest end of each beef slice, place 1 teaspoon of bread-crumb mixture from the skillet. Roll up the meat, sausage-shape, and secure it with a wooden toothpick through the center. Roll each piece in flour. In a very large skillet, over medium- high heat, melt 4 tablespoons of butter and brown the pieces of beef. As you finish, place them in the slow-cooker. Pour the water into the skillet; scrape up the pan juices and turn the sauce into the cooker. Cover and cook on Low for about 5 hours. Before serving: About half an hour before serving, mix the garlic and mustard into the sauce around the beef; cover; turn the heat to High, and cook for 30 minutes. If the sauce seems less flavorful than you like, about 5 minutes before serving add a dab of prepared mustard and a little salt. If the sauce seems thin, leave the cover off during the second cooking period.
