  • 1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the potatoes into the oven and roast for at least an hour or until soft. Alternatively place a large potato- that you have pricked all over, into your microwave and heat on high for 7 minutes.

  • 2. Remove potato and let cool. Take a slice off the side of each potato, remove the soft centre and set the skin aside. Carefully remove the soft centre of each potato and place into a bowl, ensuring you do not put a hole in the skin. Set the skins aside.

  • 3. Place the remaining ingredients into the bowl and combine well. Taste to check the seasoning, then spoon the mixture back into the potato skin.

  • 4. Top with cheese and place into a hot oven until the cheese is golden.
