  1. Start out just as if you were making a twice-baked potato.
  2. Scrub four russet potatoes (high starch – good for baking)
  3. Poke a few holes in the top of the potato to let the steam escape.
  4. Bake the potato for about 40 minutes at 400º
  5. Cut the top off the potato
  6. Scoop out the meat of the potato, being careful not to poke through the skin.
  7. To the meat of the potato, add –
  8. 2 TBL butter
  9. 1/2 tsp salt
  10. 1/2 C lowfat buttermilk
  11. Mash until smooth.  Use a mixer if you must – it needs to be smooth, not lumpy
  12. In a skillet, brown 8 oz 85/15 ground beef
  13. Drain the excess oil
  14. Add  –
  15. 1/2 onion – diced
