Potato Surprise

10 medium-large baking potatoes
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 medium onion, chopped
2 1/2 cups ground cooked meat
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or
1 teaspoon dry parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground sweet paprika
2 cups gravy or Mushroom Sauce

Cook whole potatoes in water to cover, over medium-high heat 15 minutes. Remove potatoes from water, then discard water. Let potatoes cool, then peel.
Lengthwise, cut top 1/5 off each potato, then reserve tops. Carefully hollow out each potato, leaving a 1/2 inch-thick shell; reserve potato flesh for other use.
Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Grease a shallow baking dish.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter or margarine in a medium skillet. Add onion, then saute over medium heat until tender. Blend in meat, egg, parsley, salt and pepper.
Stuff potatoes with meat mixture, then replace tops. Arrange potatoes in greased baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes. Melt 2 tablespoons butter or margarine; stir in paprika. Brush mixture lightly over potatoes.
Bake 45 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.

Serve hot with gravy or Mushroom Sauce poured on top, if desired.

    I made your potato surprise using ingredients you listed.Geared it for 3 people so I only used 3 potatos. I didn't peel potatos as we like the skin.And I didn't put top of potato back on.I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on top . I had just a little of filling mixture left in pan so I dumped a can of gravy in it and poured it over potatos when I took them out.They were very good.My grand daughter who is a picky eater loved it.She is already asking when I will make it again. Great recipe. We all enjoyed.
