This stuffed potatoes recipe is easy, the kids will adore it (so much so they can even help) and it’s tummy filling goodness. Potatoes contain half the vitamin C amount that children need daily. And who can resist spaghetti and cheese!

Serves 4

What You Need:

4 medium to large potatoes or kumara (washed but not peeled)
Salt and pepper to season
Extra grated cheese

Filling option 1:
210 g can smoked fish or tuna in spring water or savoury sauce.
125 g cottage cheese
12 can corn kernels drained
1 chopped spring onion

Filling option 2:
5 thin slices chopped ham
125 g drained crushed pineapple
14 c grated tasty cheese


Pre heat oven at 200°C
Bake potatoes for 30 minutes or until soft. The potatoes will take longer than kumara.
Remove from oven and leave to cool.
Slice around the top of each potato and scoop out the middle using a dessert spoon and place into a bowl. Try not to break the skin.
In the same bowl, add the filling of your choice and mix well with potato. Add salt and pepper to season.
Stuff your fillings back into potato skins and sprinkle with extra cheese.
Place the top back on and bake in the oven for another 10 to 15 mins.
