Method

To Bake Potatoes

1

Preheat the oven to 180 C.

2

Make sure the potatoes are clean and dry. Rub them with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt. Pierce the skin and couple of times with a sharp knife. Bake in a roasting dish for 1 hour or until tender.

3

Heat the oil in a frying pan, and cook the onion gently for 5-6 minutes, until tender.

4

Add the mince, breaking up with the back of a spoon to form small pieces until cooked thoroughly and no longer pink.

5

Stir in tomato purée, canned tomatoes and herbs. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 30 minutes until reduced and thick, but still moist.

6

Cut the potato in half lengthwise, carefully scoop out the flesh leaving a .5cm edge of potato against the skin.

7

Combine the mince mixture with the potato flesh.

8

Fill the potato shells with the mince and potato mixture.

9

Sprinkle with grated cheese and place under a hot grill until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

10

Serve with steamed greens or a salad.
