Cheesy Potatoes

Here’s a quick lunch/supper idea for the weekend, or any evening when cooking needs to be quick and easy! 

Cheesy Potatoes

olive oil and butter for frying – just a little of each 😉

potatoes – however many each person wants

chopped onions

bacon, sliced thinly

chopped mushrooms

Nandos garlic sauce or mayonnaise

grated cheddar cheese

  • Bake the pototoes in the microwave, split in half. 
  • Fry the onions in olive oil, add the bacon. 
  • Fry until slightly browned, then add the finely chopped mushrooms. 
  • Add a little butter if needed,  remove from the heat.
  • Scoop out and chop the flesh from each potato half, add to the bacon mixture. 
  • Stir through over a low heat, then add some Nandos garlic sauce, or mayo (or whatever grabs your fancy). 
  • Stir very well and check the seasoning.  
  • Arrange the potato skins in an ovenproof dish, fill each skin with the mixture, piling it high. 
  •  Top with grated cheese and place under a hot grill until melted. 
  • Enjoy!!!

 

There you have it – quick and easy!
