Kumpir / Turkish style Stuffed Baked Potato

Selam everybody..Merhaba from Turkey.

When you visit Turkey (Istanbul), you will easily find this kind of fast food, Kumpir.  
It's baked potato stuffed with many kind of filling. You can vary the stuffing according to your taste, mostly are sausage, sweetcorn, olive, some pickles, some vegetables mix with cheese. Served hot, fresh from oven with ketchup and mayonnaise make this food become popular and everybody choice.
Here I give you my recipe how to make it at home so you can experience Turkish taste in your dinner table.

Served 4.

Prepare 4 large potatoes, wash clean. Prick in some parts with a knife, wrap with aluminum foil and bake in pre-heated 200 deg C oven until cooked and soft. The time required can vary according to the size of  potatoes (it took me about 40 minutes)

You can vary amount and type of stuffing ingredients according to your taste, here I just estimate for 4 large potatoes.
• 2 medium-size beef sausage, cut into small cubes
• 1 medium carrot, cut into small cubes or grated coarsely
• 3 tablespoons sweet corn
• 3 tablespoons green peas
• Some green and black olives, cut into small
• Pickled (cucumber and cabbage), cut into small
• white cheese, small pieces or grated coarse
• Cheddar cheese or Edam, small pieces or grated coarse
• ± 100 g butter, cut into small cubes
• Salt and pepper to taste

Topping ingredients:
• Celery or dill, finely chopped
• Ketchup and mayonnaise

How to make:
1) Once potatoes cooked, remove from oven and make holes in it center and scrape it resembles a bowl and set aside.
2) Mash that scraped potatoes in a large bowl and mix with all other stuffing ingredients, season with salt and pepper, check the taste. Preheat oven to 180 ⁰ C.
3) Stuffed back into the potatoes bowl and bake until cooked about 30 minutes.

Serve warm with a sprinkling of celery or dill and tomato sauce + mayonnaise.
