Tasty Stuffed Potatoes

An oldie but a goody! If you like a crispy skin, rub a little oil on before popping in the oven. If you're in a rush you can also cook potatoes in the microwave, prick them first and each potato takes about 4-6 minutes on high depending on size.

1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Prick each potato with a fork and place on the oven rack. Bake for 60 minutes or until potato is tender when pierced with a small sharp knife.

2. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half. Carefully scoop out the centre of each half, creating a space for the filling to go in. In a bowl mash this potato in with the other filling ingredients. (Note each filling makes enough for 4 whole potatoes)

3. Pile the filling back into the potato, mounding the extra filling on top of each potato. Return to the hot oven for a further 5-10 minutes, or until the potato is heated through. Serve on its own as a great snack, or as part of your main meal.


For a non-meat filling use the Wattie’s Bean There Mexican Baked Beans instead of the Wattie’s Boston Baked Beans.
