Cheesy jacket potatoes with leek and chorizo

Cheesy jacket potatoes with leek and chorizo


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180Fan
  2. Prick the potatoes and place on a baking tray in the oven and cook for 1.25 hours or until
    crisp on the outside and cooked inside (alternatively in the microwave)
  3. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half horizontally and scoop out the
    cooked potato and place into a bowl. Add 25g of the butter, and mash together well. Stir in the cheese
  4. In the meantime, melt the remaining butter in a small frying pan and gently fry the leeks until soft, add to the mashed potato and season well
  5. In a dry frying pan fry the chorizo gently until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper and leave aside
  6. Pile the mashed potato mixture back into the potato shells. Place on a baking tray and put back in the hot oven for a few minutes to heat through
  7. Top with the crispy chorizo/bacon and serve immediately
