Twice Baked Potaatooeess
Twice baked potatoes is one of them treats I like to have now and again. The Irish eat a lot of spuds and I have many recipes but for the most part i’m able to have entire meals that don’t use the humble spud so these are enjoyed at home when I make the effort.
I was looking in the fridge, larder and pantry today and I found bags and bags of potatoes that really needed to be used up. So just before I set of to drop a buddy to the airport I stuck four good sized spuds in the oven. These get a rub of olive oil and a grind of salt and pepper.
After and hour these are ready and if you just want baked potatoes you are ready to pour over beans, sprinkle with cheese or invent your own combo.
For the luxurious twice baked option you with need.
2 x Baked Potato
50g x Cheese (I used cheddar)
25g x Butter
A drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Half the spud and scoop out the innards. You need to keep the skin a bit thick as it will act as a cup to hold the mixture.
A simple tasty treat that make the humble spud a welcome house guest!
