Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Place the leeks in a microwaveable bowl with a splash of water, then microwave for 3 mins on High. Set aside. Microwave the potatoes for 10-15 mins on High, turning halfway through cooking. Leave until cool enough to handle, then cut in half lengthways and carefully scoop out the middle into the bowl with the leeks, keeping the potato skin intact.
  2. Mash the leek and potato with the soft cheese, egg and parsley, then spoon back into the potato skins. Place on a baking sheet, then bake for 15 mins until the filling is golden brown and piping hot, and the skins have crisped up. Delicious served with a tomato and baby leaf salad.

I found the skins are crispier if you place them in the oven whilst mashing the potato with the leeks etc.

These were very good - quick and very tasty. I didn't have any eggs so mashed with a splash of milk instead - worked a treat.

I had never had leaks or herb cream cheese before I made this. Tasted gorgeous. Went down really well at my party last night. Really easy, cheap and quick to make and really filling.
