Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse potatoes, prick all over with a fork and place on a bed of salt in a baking dish; bake in a preheated 400F oven for an hour or until just tender, turning once.
  2. After the potatoes have cooled slightly, cut in half lengthwise and, using a small spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato lining each half; brush the potato halves inside & out with butter and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle with half the cheese, fill the potatoes with ham (or bacon), red pepper & green onions; season with salt & freshly ground pepper and top with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until hot & bubbling.
