Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Wash and pierce the skins of the potatoes a few times with a sharp knife. Rub the skin with a little olive oil and bake for 1 hr 30 mins until soft inside and crisp on the outside.

  2. Meanwhile, make the coleslaw. Mix the yogurt and mustard together in a bowl. Then, use a grating attachment on a food processor, or a box grater, to grate the cabbage and carrots. Either grate the onion or chop as finely as you can. Tip all of the vegetables into the bowl and stir through the yogurt and mustard.

  3. Once the potatoes are crisp on the outside and soft inside, remove from the oven and cut in half. Scoop out the flesh and mash with the butter and yogurt, stir in the spring onion and sweetcorn and most of the cheese, reserving a little of the cheese for topping. Season if needed.

  4. Turn the oven up to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Load the filling back into the crisp potato skins, top with the remaining cheese and put them back in the oven on a baking sheet for about 10-15 mins, or until the cheese is melted and the edges are browning. To serve, sprinkle with chives and serve alongside the coleslaw with a dollop of natural yogurt.
