Recipe for Baked Potatoes
Recipe type: Side dish
Serves: 2
  • 6-8 small to medium potatoes
  • olive oil
  • Salt to season potatoes
  • Chorizo - approximately 50 grams chopped into pieces
  • Fresh Rosemary leaves
  • Fresh Parsley leaves
  • Fresh Thyme leaves
  • Feta Cheese - to your taste to serve
  • Salt and Pepper - to serve
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Pre-cook the potatoes by either boiling them or cooking them in the microwave for 3-4 minutes
  3. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and sprinkle with salt
  4. Bake potatoes for 45 minutes to 1 hour until they are crisping on the outside and turning golden
  5. In a hot pan add the chopped chorizo and herbs and cook for a couple of minutes
  6. When the potatoes are cooked, split each one and fill with the chorizo and herbs and top with feta then season as desired.
Pre-cooking the potatoes makes them crispier as it dries them out. They are best left to sit for a while prior to going in the oven if you have the time. They can go into the oven completely cool and they will work beautifully
Use a good quality chorizo if you can as it makes a world of difference to the flavour
You do not need to add any oil to the pan with the chorizo as the oil of the meat will be released as it cooks
