Ingredients
• 4 medium potatoes
• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 1 onion, finely chopped
• 4 rashers short cut bacon, chopped
• 1 cup grated tasty cheese, plus extra to sprinkle
• 2-3 tablespoons milk
• ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

 

Method
1. Scrub potatoes and stab each with a toothpick (about 8 holes each – all around the potato). Wrap each potato in a piece of paper towel and place in the microwave.
2. Cook on high for 4 minutes or until tender when restabbed with the toothpick. Leave to cool.
3. Heat a non-stick frypan to medium-high heat, add oil and cook bacon and onion until golden brown.
4. Preheat the oven to 180°C. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, remove paper towel and cut the top off the potato. Scoop out the inside of the potato and place in a bowl.
5. Be careful not to break the skin – I leave about a 5mm shell. Mash the potato and stir in bacon, onion, cheese and parsley. Add enough milk to make a mash potato consistency.
6. Stuff the mixture into the potatoes, overfilling a bit, and then sprinkle with extra cheese.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is golden brown and potatoes are heated through.
8. Serve with a green salad.
