2 lbs. Ground Beef
Mashed Potatoes
1-1/2 cups celery chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1-1/4 teaspoons ground thyme
1-1/2 teaspoons ground sage or (poultry spices mixture)
3/4 teaspoon Pepper and Salt
1/4 cup chicken broth or water
Saute the celery and onion in the pan before adding the meat.

Break up the ground beef as you add it to the sauteed celery and onion. Mix well, add spices, the salt and pepper along with the liquid. Cover and simmer until meat is cooked. Let this mixture cool before adding the mashed potatoes.

Fold in the mashed potatoes. You may add more poultry spices to taste along with some Bread Crumbs (not bread cubes) to make a good consistency (not too dry). If you find it too dry, add a little warm water.

wave  I have only ever made potato & apple stuffing for roast goose & I used Darina Allen's recipe for it. She is the wonderful Irish cook (of the Ballymaloe Cooking School) ; her recipes are great.

Hattie, that looks suspiciously like the recipe I have also used.

 

Frankly it was so good as stuffing that I also on another occassion made some potato patties with it that I pan fried and served with pork.

 

Umm, may well have just decided what is on the menu for next Sunday.

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...

Thanks Peeps, I have to say I prefer the idea of potato and apple, but might experiment with both. Any more anyone?

Jan, Chris mentioned that he made potato patties with his mixture.

In the book 'Ministry of Food' by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall, there is a recipe for 'Potato Floddies'. This is described as 'really a potato fritter', works well as a savoury dish with tomato sauce, or a fried egg on top.

(Also says, served with jam and a blob of clotted cream or creme fraiche it makes a rather wicked pudding!)

4 medium-sized potatoes

4 tbspns plain flour

4 tbspns chopped mixed herbs (optional)

dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

4 tbspns dripping or vegetable oil

salt and freshly ground black pepper.

 

Floddies:

Peel, then grate potatoes into a bowl.

Add sufficient flour to form a stiff batter. Then season.

For savoury, add herbs and cayenne pepper.

Drop heaped tablespoons of mixture into the hot dripping in a frying pan.

Fry about 4 mins each side.

 

For stuffing, I suppose you could make it a little more stiff with more flour (i.e. not a 'batter').

 

Just an idea. (Might try this myself!!)  i_am_hungry

Of course, there is a recipe here (no picture tho) for Irish goose with potato stuffing .... is that a bit obvious though ? big_laugh

 

How adventurous is your customer? See here.

Scroll down on this page for the roast goose with potato stuffing.

 

Just for now, Jan ..... wink
