Ingredients
 

  • 4 large potatoes about 9 oz each
  • 1/2 medium cooking apple
  • 1 oz margarine or butter
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 4 sage leaves chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • salt margarine or butter for greasing

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  • Scrub the potatoes and with a fork prick each one in 2 places on both, sides. Bake the potatoes in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven (leaving the oven on), allow to cool slightly, then cut each one in half lengthways. Scoop the cooked potato into a bowl, leaving the shells intact. Mash the potato well. Peel, core and finely chop the apple.
  • Melt the margarine in a small frying-pan, add the onion and fry gently until it begins to soften, stirring occasionally. Stir in the apple and cook for a further 2 - 3 minutes, until soft.
  • Stir the apple and onion mixture into the mashed potato. Add the sage, mustard and a little salt. Mix thoroughly.
  • Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells and make criss-cross patterns on the top with a fork for a decorative finish.
  • Put the potato shells in a greased shallow ovenproof dish and return to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes until the tops are browned. Serve piping hot. Alternatively, top the potatoes with grated cheese
