Cheese, bacon and onion baked potatoes

A perfect warming meal for winter, this dish is sure to be a family favourite.
final potato
Serves: 4. Preparation: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Ingredients:

- 4 medium baked potatoes
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. double cream
- 25g butter
- 1 large onion, finely sliced
- 6 slices of smoked bacon, chopped up
- 200g good melting cheese
- Chopped parsley
1 . Heat oven to 180C/gas 6. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and rub them with half of the olive oil, some black pepper and some sea salt.

2 . Arrange the potatoes on a baking tray and cook for about 1 hour 15 minutes, making sure their skins are crisp and the potato is completely soft and tender.

3 . Whilst the potatoes are cooking, heat the remaining olive oil and half of the butter into a frying pan. Add the finely sliced onion and gently cook for 15-20 minutes until they are golden and soft. Remove the onions from the pan and set aside for later.

4 . Add the chopped bacon to the pan and fry until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and place on kitchen paper for later.

5 . Once cooked, take the potatoes out of the oven and halve each potato length-ways. Scoop out most of the potato and put in a separate bowl, leaving the potato skins with a thin layer of potato inside.

6 . In the bowl, mash the potato with the remaining butter and the double cream. Then add a pinch of salt and pepper, the onion, bacon, three-quarters of the cheese and half of the parsley and mix together.

7 . Spoon the potato mix back into the potato skins and top with the remaining cheese. Put the potatoes back onto the baking tray and return to the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are melting and golden. Sprinkle the remaining parsley on top and enjoy.
