Potatoes 3 no
Cheddar 100gms
spring onion 50 gms
Salt to taste
Black pepper 5 gms
Worcestershire sauce 5 ml
Oil, for frying


Preheat the oven to 415 degrees F (200c/gas mark 6).

Prick all 3potatoes, and then bake the potatoes until the skins are crisp and the insides floury, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. As soon as you can bear to tackle the hot potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise and scoop the insides into a bowl. Put the husk-like skins of the potatoes on a tray and, when cool, cover until you are ready to fill them. Let the potato cool in the bowl, and then cover until needed.

When you are ready to fill the potatoes, preheat the oven to 415 degrees F (200c/ ) Add 100g of grated Cheddar to the cold potato finely chop the spring onion and add to the potato, with the salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Spoon the potato filling into the potato skins, and lay each half on a baking tray. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese, giving each potato skin a light covering, and cook until golden, about 20 to 30 minutes.
