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).

Enjoyed this recipe however i under cooked the broccoli slightly so it was a little too crunchy. I also baked my potatoes in the oven for 1 1/2 hours (instead of using the microwave) as i find the skin goes crispier and tends to hold its shape a bit better. Next time i'll serve it with the tomato relish to give it more flavour.

Great, easy, wholesome recipe! It's very easy to adapt to different ingredients too, I added some fried mushrooms (as I'm addicted to them), chopped cherry toms, parmesan cheese, and fresh breadcrumbs on top, yum!

without the salsa this was very bland and disappointing.
