  1. Preheat oven 190C / 375F / Gas 5
  2. Get your Potatoes in the oven and bake until soft inside and crispy outside – approx. 60 - 90 minutes
  3. Using the heat for the oven place your bacon and if using sausages on a baking tray and bake until crispy (approx. 20 – 30 minutes)
  4. Remove bacon (and sausages if using) and leave to cool. I cut my bacon up with kitchen scissors into 1cm square pieces, put on one side
  5. When your potatoes are done – remove from oven and slice longways in half (careful very hot) scoop out the potato inside using a teaspoon and place in a bowl ( keeping the skins on one side)
  6. Mash the potato with a fork, add the bacon pieces (sausage pieces if using) black pepper, a dash of milk and 1/2 the grated cheese, finally add 1/2 the flat leaf parsley
  7. Fill the skins with the potato mixture using a teaspoon, then sprinkle with the remaining cheese and parsley
  8. Place in an ovenproof dish and bake at 200c/400F/ Gas 6 until golden (approx. 25 - 30 minutes)
  9. Remove from oven, serve with beans
* You can also use things like sweetcorn, diced peppers, mixed beans, mince to stuff the potatoes and mix a small handful of fresh herbs, such as oregano, basil, coriander, dill or thyme with the potato mixture.
