Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Microwave the potatoes on High for 12-15 mins until tender. Meanwhile, steam or boil the broccoli for 3 mins, then drain well. When the potatoes have cooled a little, cut them in half lengthways and scoop the insides into a bowl.

  2. Put the potato shells on a baking sheet. Mash the flesh with a fork, then stir in the mustard, egg, most of the cheese and the broccoli. Season if needed, then pile back into the shells. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese and bake for 15 mins until the tops are crisp and golden. Serve with salad and Tomato relish (see recipe, below).

I really enjoyed this one, am making it again tonight in fact! I didn't use the egg when I made mine and I baked my potatoes in the oven so the skins were nice and crispy. Don't think I'll boil my broccoli this time, will roast it instead for 5-10 minutes and going to use blue cheese instead of cheddar - I'm looking forward to it already.

Made this last night. I didn't microwave it, or use the egg, used a few tbsp of sour cream when mashing the potato instead. Also forgot to put the mustard in - just realised as I was putting them back in the oven. Served it with bbq beans instead of the salsa. Really nice and the OH gave it the thumbs up too.

I made mine without the salsa but part of a main meal with veg and gravy. Me and my Mum really enjoyed it :)

Hi there, thanks for your question, why not add a few tablespoons of mayonnaise to the mixture and use half the amount of mustard instead? Hope this helps.
