Cheesy twice baked potatoes (slimming world friendly)

  Potatoes are so versatile but can get quite boring boiled, mashed, baked.... This way of making them gives them loads of flavour and doesnt take too much effort, Makes them extra tasty as a side dish but if you wanted to you could add some ham or tuna to the mix and serve with a salad for an interesting lunch. I served them with a steak and salad made a change from ordinary baked potatoes.

Cheesy twice baked potatoes

serves 1 

1 baking potato (use a floury type like maris piper or king edward)
1 laughing cow extra light triangle (or could use the blue cheese light ones if you prefer)
spring onion (chopped)
salt and pepper


Wash the potato and while still damp sprinkle with salt and bake in a moderate oven for about an hour until skin is crispy.

Cut the potato in two halves lengthways and scoop out all the potato flesh and place in a bowl, Add the spring onions, cheese triangle and some salt and pepper and mash together really well. Put the mixture back into the potato shells and then place on a baking tray.

Bake for another 20-30 minutes until top is crispy and brown.

1 syn on extra easy but if you use the laughing cow as part of your 'B' choice then it could be free :  )
