Ingredients
  • 4 baking potatoes
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 4 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 150ml reduced-fat sour cream
  • 125g grated Cheddar
  • 3 tbsp chopped chives
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Wash the baking potatoes, then pat dry with kitchen roll. Prick with a fork, rub with the sunflower oil, then sprinkle with the sea salt. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the skins are crisp and the potatoes are cooked through.

  • Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Cut in half and scoop out some of the potato flesh, leaving a thin layer inside the skins. (The leftover potato can be used for mash.)

  • Meanwhile grill the bacon until crisp, then cut into pieces. Mix the sour cream with the cheese and chives. Divide between the potato skins.

  • Heat through on the barbecue or grill for 5 minutes. Top with the bacon and serve with salad.
