DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub the potatoes, but do not peel them. Use the tip of a knife to cut out any eyes.
  • Put the potatoes in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring it to the boil and cook them for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Cut the cheese into thin slices.
  • Check that the potatoes are cooked by pushing a sharp knife into one. It should come out easily.
  • Drain the potatoes and let them cool a little. Cut them in half. Lay the cheese onto the cut side of each potato.
  • Put the potatoes under the broiler (or onto a grill rack) and cook until the cheese melts and starts to bubble.
