Prep time: 10-15 mins

Cooking time: 1 hour 05

Serves: 4

ingredients

4 large potatoes, washed.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, thinly sliced.

kosher salt.

fresh ground black pepper.

olive oil.

230g cheddar of choice.

x 2  220g Simon Howie smoked OR unsmoked back bacon, chopped.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place potatoes on a cutting board with wood skewers on each side (lengthwise).  Slice potato about 3/4 of the way through.  The skewers will keep you from cutting all the way through.  Cut to about 1/8″ thickness.
  3. Drizzle potatoes with olive oil and place a piece of sliced butter in every few slices.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for about 1 hour.
  4. Cut bacon into small slices, place on a pan and cook on a medium-high heat for approx. 5-6 mins, or until golden. Set aside.
  5. Remove potatoes from oven. Potatoes will have opened up slightly so you can stuff cheddar and the browned bacon into the sliced slots.  Pack 2 ounces of cheese and 1/4 of your bacon into each potato.  Return to oven and cook for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with your Christmas Dinner and ENJOY!
