Westcombe Cheddar and bacon stuffed baby baked potatoes

Westcombe Cheddar and bacon stuffed baby baked potatoes


Serve from the oven whilst still warm for a really delicious party nibble. Very popular with adults and children too especially if they can have some tomato ketchup to dip them into!

1. Simmer the potatoes until just tender. Grill bacon until crisp.

2. Cut tops of each potato and using a small sharp knife scoop out the flesh. Cut thin strips off potato bases if necessary so that the potatoes can stay upright.

3. Combine potato flesh with the butter and cheese using a fork. Season well and stir in the bacon.

4. Using a teaspoon carefully spoon filling back into the potato shell and top with the potato lids at a jaunty angle.

5. Brush liberally with the olive oil. Rest in a baking dish lined with baking parchment and cook at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 until the filling is golden and the cheese is oozing

6. Garnish and serve whilst still warm.
