Recipe: Loaded Jacket Potato Skins
Loaded Jacket Potato Skins (serves 4 as a starter or side dish, serves 2 as a main)
2 baking potatoes
2 thin rashers smoked bacon, diced very finely
6 spring onions
75g garlic and herb Boursin
Splash of milk
Salt and pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Bake the potatoes for 60-80 minutes or until soft on the inside and the skin is crispy. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool a little.
2. Meanwhile, fry the bacon and spring onions in a non-stick frying pan, for about 5 minutes- or until the spring onions are cooked and the bacon has started going crispy.
3. Whilst still warm, slice the jacket potatoes in half, and scoop out the flesh. Mix the flesh with the butter, boursin, spring onions, bacon and seasoning. Re-stuff into the potato skins, top with parmesan, and put under the grill for 5 minutes- or until golden!
