Stuffed Potatoes with Meat Russian Style Recipe

This recipe is Russian comfort food. So easy to make and very tasty! This stuffed potato can be a fancy meal or casual meal. All my friends and family in Russia had a curl cutter to make a cavity in a spiral shape from potatoes. It is so impressive to serve stuffed potatoes with spirals around as garnish. The spirals are so nice garnish with many dishes.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to have a curl cutter to make stuffed potatoes with meat or other stuffings. We can replace curl cutter with a 1-inch corer or just use a knife to make a cavity.

I can call this recipe healthy stuffed potato because we can easy to omit the butter and use only vegetable oil and it will be an acceptable dish in some diets.


5 large potatoes

1 pound ground meat

2 tablespoon breadcrumbs

1 onion

1 carrot

1/2 cup sour cream

1 bay leave

Salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes to taste

1 tablespoon butter and vegetable oil to saute vegetables

*meat amount approximate, I used 11 oz (300g) this time. However, better to have leftovers ground meat, than don’t have enough to fill potatoes.
