  • 4 large baking potatoes scrubbed
  • a little olive oil for rubbing
  • 2 oz butter
  • 5 tbsp milk cooked
  • 4 oz gammon cubed, fat removed
  • 4 spring onions sliced diagonally
  • 4 oz mature cheddar grated

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan oven/Gas Mark 6. Prick the potatoes, rub with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until a skewer glides easily through the centre of the largest potato.
  • Cut the potatoes in half lengthways. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh and place it in a bowl, reserving the skins.
  • Add the butter and milk and mash well. Stir in the gammon, spring onions, half the cheddar and the herbs. Season with pepper.
  • Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins and sprinkle the remaining cheddar over the top.
