Jacket Potato Wedges with Melting Cheese and Spring Onion

Top these potatoes (left in photograph, below) while they are still hot so that the cheese melts well – on cold potatoes, it has a tendency to go hard and crispy.


Serves 4

Jacket Potato Wedges with Melting Cheese and Spring Onion
Ingredients
 1 lb 8 oz (700 g) small potatoes, washed
 2 oz (50 g) mature Cheddar cheese, grated

 olive oil
 sea salt
 Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, 350°F, 180°C.
Equipment
You will also need a solid, medium, shallow roasting tin.

Method

First rub each potato with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt. Bake them on a high shelf in the oven for an hour. 

Then preheat the grill, cut each potato into quarters and place them in a grill pan lined with foil. Scatter the spring onions over the potatoes, then sprinkle on the grated cheese. 

Place under the grill until the cheese has browned and is bubbling.
