Grilled Cheddar Potatoes

    30 minutes

    The classic comfort food and the first recipe many of us ever learned in school! Much quicker than baking them.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 large baking potatoes
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 250g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
    • 1 onion or 4 spring onions, thinly diced
    • salt and pepper

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:5min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Wash the potatoes, cut in half lengthwise but don't peel them. Place in a pan of boiling salted water and cook until medium soft.
    2. Drain and remove them from the water. Scoop out the "flesh", taking care not to split the skin. Put the skin to one side, don't throw away.
    3. Place the flesh into a mixing bowl, add the butter, sliced onion and half of the cheese. Mix well.
    4. Then put the mixture into the skins. sprinkle the rest of the cheese on the top and place under the grill for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
    5. Serve and enjoy.

    The best part of jacket potatoes is the crunchy skin which you won't get with this recipe. Only way would be to carefully grill the empty skins before you put the filling back.  -  10 Jul 2011


    I actually used some new potatoes for this as an appetizer for a party. I added some salt and pepper along with some sour cream for flavor. I also rubbed just a bit of oil on the skins so they'd crisp up a little. Customizable for what you have on hand (different cheeses, adding bacon, etc.) and my guests loved them. Tasty!  -  07 May 2013
