This is a great Bonfire Night recipe. My Mum used to make it occasionally through the winter months. I loved it as a child. My children seem very happy to help prepare and eat this.
Good comfort food!
The recipe is very simple.
Baking potato per person
Butter/margarine for mashing
Salt and pepper
Bacon rasher per person
Bake the potatoes.
Halve the potatoes and shell out the contents keeping the skins intact. Mash the potato with butter/margarine and cheese to taste. Season.
Refill the potato skins-they will be very full.
Grate over a little more cheddar.
Top with a rasher of bacon.
Warm under a grill for 2 minutes until the cheese is melted.
