Stuffed potatoes with meat

This would probably be very good if I understood KG and the "Peel potatoes and remove the inside.
Fry potatoes in oil until golden, then fry insides that you took out." Needs to be a little more clear in it's instructions.

Kg is symbol for a Kilogram (Weight), one kilogram is 2.2 pounds so half Kg is approximately one pound. Peel the potatoes, cut off one end of the potato about half inch from the top and scoop out the insides of the potato as much as you can without breaking the 'wall' of the potato. Deep fry the scooped out hollow potato shell and then fry the potato flesh scooped out earlier. I hope that clarifies things a little more, so go ahead and try the is delicious! .....Vinny


I love this dish! It's one of my favorites. I actually plan to add my own recipe to my food blog at

For those who don't know 1 kg is approximately 2 lbs so 1/2 kg would be approximately 1 lb. Just over on both actually.
