For those who don’t know me, I am potato obsessed. I’ve never met a potato that I didn’t like, which isn’t unusual coming from a large Irish family whose main source of sustenance is potatoes.

However, the following dish takes the cake for my favorite way to prepare potatoes.

I count down the days to the holiday season every year in anticipation of my grandmother’s potato stuffing. By far the best dish on the entire table, it is a tasty way to add some potatoes, meat and ground vegetables into your holiday meal. Potato stuffing serves as a great source of antioxidants and various other vitamins and minerals, making the dish an excellent balance of taste and health for your next family meal.

Potato Stuffing

10 cups of potatoes, peeled and boiled

1 1/2 cup butter

2 large onions

3 sticks of celery

1 lb ground beef

1 tsp ground sage

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mash the potatoes and put them in a large bowl.
  3. Melt the butter and pour most of it over the potatoes.
  4. Grind the celery, onion and meat together until the celery is tender.
  5. Sauté the ground mixture and add to the potato mixture.
  6. Add the sage, salt, pepper and parsley to the potato mixture and blend well.
  7. Bake in the oven in a roast pan for 20 minutes.
