Gunpowder Twice Baked Potatoes

A cheesy twice-baked potato is pure comfort food whatever the season. Take things up a level by stirring in some of our Gunpowder Hot Garlic Pickle. This simple addition will liven up the flavour no end.

Ingredients
  

  • Ingredients per person
  • 1 Medium baking potato
  • 75 g Strong cheddar cheese
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 knob butter
  • 3 tsp Gunpowder Hot Garlic Pickle
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions
 

  • Prick the potato a few times with a fork and bake in a hot oven (200C/ 400F/ GM6) for around 1¼ hours or until the centre feels tender when poked with a sharp knife
  • When baked remove from the oven and turn down the temperature to 180C/ 350F/ GM 4
  • Cut the potato in half and carefully scoop the flesh out of the skins without tearing them. Mash the flesh until smooth then stir in the butter and season with a little salt & pepper
  • Grate the cheese and slice the spring onion finely. Mix ¾ of the cheese and all of the spring onion into the potato along with 2 tsp of the Gunpowder Pickle
  • Pile the mashed potato back into the skins, place onto a baking tray & scatter with the remaining cheese
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes until piping hot and the cheese has melted then top with the remaining pickle and serve
  • Serving Suggestion
  • A fresh green salad makes the ideal accompaniment to this punchy and satisfying baked potato. The cool crunchy leaves and vegetables are a great contrast to the smooth and creamy flesh.

Notes

Expert Tips
• Don’t forget to test the potato is cooked through before cutting it open for mashing – potatoes do vary in size and cook times will also vary accordingly
• Taste the mash before adding it back into the potato skins for the second bake. Add extra pickle and seasoning to suit your tastes
• These potatoes can be made in advance and cooked for the second time later on. Once assembled, allow to cool then chill until required. Remove from the fridge and cook for 30 minutes
• They can also be frozen once assembled. Allow to defrost fully before proceeding to bake for the second time
