Colcannon jacket potatoes EMAILIngredients:

4 baking potatoes
½ Savoy cabbage, shredded
350g (12oz) tub cheese sauce
1 bunch salad onions, thinly sliced
50g (2oz) mature Cheddar, grated


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/R6. Prick the potatoes with a fork and microwave on full power for 12-15 minutes until soft.

2. Meanwhile, cook the cabbage in a large pan of boiling water for 4 minutes until tender. Drain thoroughly.

3. Halve the potatoes and scoop the flesh into a bowl, leaving a 5mm-thick shell. Mash the potato flesh then stir in the cheese sauce, cabbage and salad onions. Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells. Transfer to a baking sheet and scatter over the grated Cheddar. Bake for 20-25 minutes until piping hot and golden brown.

Cook’s tips

If you don’t have a microwave, bake the potatoes for 1 hour at 190ºC/R5 until tender before continuing with step 2. Try adding a spoonful of wholegrain mustard in with the cheese sauce.
