Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons sea salt flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 Cup cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 Cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 scallions, finely sliced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Ounces cooking chorizo, chopped small

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

Wet the potatoes, shake off any excess water and sprinkle all over with the sea salt flakes. Place in a 8 x 12 x 2-in sheet pan and bake for 1–1 hour 15 minutes, or until completely cooked through and tender.

Brush the salt off the potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop the potato flesh into a bowl being careful not to split the skins. Add the butter, cream cheese and half the cheddar to the potatoes and mix until smoothish. Stir in the scallions and season with salt and pepper.

Fill the skins with the potato mixture and return to the sheet pan. Top each of the filled potato halves with chorizo and sprinkle over the remaining cheddar. Bake for a further 10–15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling. Serve immediately.
