PETRO’S STUFFED POTATOES
Wash 8 large potatoes well and prick the skin all over with a fork .
Brush the potatoes with a little olive oil , arrange the on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 1 hour until crispy outside and soft inside .
Remove from the oven and slice in half with a sharp knife .
Hollow out the halves and spoon the cooked potato into a mixing bowl .
Fry 2 leeks in a large knob of butter and
stir this together with
10 ml mustard powder ,
3 ml chilli powder ,
1 chopped chille ,
200 g chopped ham and
about 60 ml sour cream into the cooked potato .
Remember to add salt and pepper .
Now spoon the mixure back into the hollowed- out potato skins and sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on top . Bake for a further 15-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through .
