  • 2 baking potatoes
  • 100 g (3½ oz) grated cheese (optional but recommended!)
  • 1-2 tsp of salt
  • Butter
  • Grated parmesan cheese
For the KFC mix
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp basil
  • ½ tsp sage
  • ½ tsp marjoram
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  1. Wash the potatoes and while still damp rub them all over with salt.
  2. Poke a metal skewer through each potato and bake at around 170°C/340°F for an hour or so until the centre of the potato is soft.
  3. Remove the skewers and cut the potatoes in half parallel to their long side. Scoop the insides into a bowl.
  4. Add a knob of butter and the cheese. Mash well.
  5. Add a tsp of the KFC mix. Mix well and taste. Add extra KFC mix if required.
  6. Spoon the mixture back into the empty potato skins. Sprinkle on a little extra cheese and maybe some parmesan cheese.
  7. Place on a baking tray and put back in the oven for around 20 minutes.
Titli's Tips
Serve with coleslaw and a salad for a tasty supper. Store the KFC mix in a sealed container such as an empty spice jar.
