Serves 4 as a side or starter
2 large Rooster potatoes
4 streaky bacon rashers, chopped and cooked until crispy
4 tbsp sour cream
2 spring onions, chopped
50g Cheddar, grated, plus extra to top
Salt and black pepper
- Bake the potatoes according to these instructions.
- Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half. Carefully use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the potatoes, leaving about ½cm of flesh inside to hold the shells together.
- Turn the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4.
- Place the flesh into a large bowl and combine with the butter, bacon, sour cream, spring onions, Cheddar and some salt and pepper.
- Fill the potato skins with the filling and place on a baking tray. Top with a little extra grated Cheddar.
- Return the potatoes to the oven for 15-20 minutes or until they are heated through and the cheese has melted.
