Friday night treat ... Stuffed baked potatoes

Like my recipe for camembert tarts, I think of this as a Friday night novelty food. It doesn't exactly cover all the food groups, but is delicious and celebratory. Hey, the weekend is just around the corner!

You'll need some large potatoes, grated cheese (cheddar, or whatever you like) and pepper and salt to taste.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (about 350 degrees F). Scrub the outsides of the potatoes and prick them with a fork. Bake potatoes for about twenty minutes, or long enough for their skins to toughen a little. Then pop them in the microwave and cook for about ten minutes, until they're soft in the middle. Remove them from the microwave and slice through the top. Scoop the white part of each potato out and mash it with cheese, pepper and salt. Return the cheesy potato mixture to the potato skins, and return them to the oven to reheat (about twenty minutes or so).

Eat and enjoy!

Not the most photogenic of meals ... but it does taste
good! Tonight I used feta cheese.
