Well, winter’s practically here so it’s a great time make warming, heavier dishes. I’m a great fan of the humble baked potato, so here’s a tasty, simple recipe to try out on a cold day…
Baked Potatoes With Tuna, Cheese and Watercress - serves 4
4 baking potatoes (wash the skins)
25g/ 1oz butter
100g/ 4oz grated cheese
85g chopped watercress
1 can (185g) tuna, drained
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 220°C/ Gas Mark 7 and bake the potatoes or about 1 hour or until tender.
Cut the potatoes in half lengthways and use a spoon to scoop the flesh out of the skins into a bowl. Mash the potato with the butter and half the cheese. Add the watercress and tuna, then mix well and add salt and pepper to taste.
Stuffthe potato skins with this mixture and place them on a baking tray. Sprinkle on the remaining grated cheese and return to the oven for a further 10 -15mins or until the tops are golden.
