  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the conventional oven to 450 degrees F. Place the potatoes in a microwave-safe, oven-proof glass baking dish, such as a pie plate, that fits in the microwave oven. Microwave the potatoes at full power for 10 minutes (the amount of time it takes to preheat the oven). Transfer the potatoes to the conventional oven and bake until tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Ten to 15 minutes before the potatoes are done baking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook until lightly browned, chopping and turning as needed with a spatula so the turkey browns evenly, about 5 minutes. Add the seasoning to the skillet, followed by the peas, carrots, green beans, tomatoes and gravy to make the stew. Stir gently to combine and simmer for 5 minutes. Keep warm.
  3. To serve: Cut each potato in half across its equator and set each half, cut-side down on a plate so that it looks like a small mountain. Cut a slit in the top of each potato half and squeeze the sides gently forcing some of the potato to 'erupt' from the top. Ladle 1 cup of the stew over each potato to resemble flowing lava; serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Tip: We know there's nothing new about microwave-baked potatoes, but the technique in this recipe is a little different and gives much fluffier results. The problem with microwaving baking potatoes is that microwave ovens don't really bake – they steam – so the potatoes come out damp and dense instead of light and fluffy. You can quickly and easily get the best of both worlds by simultaneously preheating a conventional oven while the potatoes start cooking in a microwave oven. Then, when both the potatoes and the oven are hot, you place the spuds in the conventional oven, and they finish baking in about 20 minutes. The results are identical to oven-baking, but cooked in about half the time.

Really tasty and fun! I put a little bit of olive oil on the potato skins before putting them in the oven and they came out nice and crispy. I also used fresh baby carrots and broccoli instead...

We did not like this one bit! My kids wouldn't eat it, my hubby asked me not to make it again. I thought it was okay - I made it just as the recipe called and added garlic as others mentioned....

Love the concept of this recipe. Healthy and fun for kids. I agree with the review that it would lack flavor if followed exactly so I doctored it up with fresh garlic, onion powder, and a lot ...

I had to make some changes based on what was in the pantry but it was a very satisfying meal. Will make it again.
