  • 750g Charlotte potatoes
  • 1 large leek, finely shredded
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 30g butter
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Take 4 lengths of 38 x 60cm greaseproof paper. Lie one piece horizontally on a large baking tray and top with the other piece vertically to form a cross shape.

  • Parboil the potatoes for 10-12 minutes. Drain well, cool slightly and cut in half. In a large mixing bowl, toss the potatoes with the leeks, bay leaves, oil and butter. Season with rock salt and black pepper.

  • Pile half the potatoes in the centre of the greaseproof paper and scrunch the edges to form a moneybag shape. Tie with string. Repeat with the remaining potatoes to make a second parcel – this is much easier with a helper!

  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the vegetables are steaming hot. Remove from the oven and bring straight to the table. Serve from the untied bags – the kids will love them!
