6 large baking potatoes
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. thyme
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 can beef broth
12 oz. pkg. frozen peas and carrots (cooked as directed on the package)
additional salt and pepper
Scrub and rinse potatoes thoroughly. Place in 9x13, cover with foil, and bake at 400 for 1-1 1/2 hrs until soft (the time depends on the size of the potato). Uncover and allow to cool. In large skillet, cook onion and beef until beef is done; drain. Return beef to skillet and add flour, seasonings, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix until combined; add broth. Cook until mixture is bubbly. Add veggies; stir until combined; remove from heat. Lay potato on cutting board, slice the top off (lengthwise) and scoop out the potato pulp leaving enough around the edges to make a boat.
Place boats in 9x13, cover, and freeze.
Thaw completely in fridge. Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 45-60 min. These are thick and take awhile to get the inside hot. Once hot throughout, broil the last 5 min. to get a slightly crispy potato top. Enjoy!
