You will need:

Your choice of filling, here are a couple of my favourite combinations:


  1. Set the oven to Gas mark 7, 200C.
  2. Chuck in your potatoes for about an hour until they are cooked.
  3. Take them out of the oven, cut the in half lengthways and carefully scrape out the middle into a bowl. (They will be hot!) Be careful not to break the potato skins as you will need them in a minute.
  4. Add your chosen filling (If using meat or tough veggies cook these first) along with come salt, pepper, butter and half a beaten egg.
  5. Mash all of this together and then spoon the mash mixture back into the potato skin shells.
  6. Place the refilled potatoes back into the oven and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes until your mixture is piping hot all the way through.

Serve with salad, baked beans or on their own.
