  • Ingredients


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.


Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, 350°F, 180°C.
