Step by Step Method

Step 1

Wash large potatoes with a vegetable brush and place in a shallow pan in a 425 degree oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until soft.

Step 2

Cut a 1/2 inch slice off tip and scoop out inside and mash with the next 5 ingredients (-cream). Season to taste with salt and pepper and then stuff potato shells with mixture. Brush with melted butter and arrange close together, stuffed ends up, in a shallow baking dish. Bake in 400 degree oven just long enough to brown the tops.

I made exactly as posted except I added about 2 tablespoons of sharp cheddar and cut the recipe down to 2 potatoes. Delicious! I could eat this as a main dish but used as a side last night. I was hoping to have a half today for lunch, but my son came out and grabbed it last they were a hit!

Well I asked DH to get me two large potatoes to make this recipe and ended up only using one for the two of us as it weight just over 1 lb so it was half each and took 1 1/2 hours at 175C fan forced to cook through unfortunately due to the weather I could not get out to the herb garden for the parsley and chives so finely cut up the green part of the spring onion otherwise made as per recipe and garnished with some of the bacon and green spring onion and thoroughly enjoyed with our crumbed chicken. Thank you ellie made for Only The Lonely tag game at FF&F.
