Directions


1. Scrub the potatoes and criss cross the tops lightly with a sharp knife, this will stop them exploding in the oven while your back is turned.
I remember a chef, who once said, “whatever you do, please buy only potatoes with dirt on them, pre washed potatoes are not natural!”.

2. Then, put onto a baking tray and bake in the oven at 200ºC for an hour or untill cooked through. Let them cool just enough so you can handle them, slice the tops off and scoope the potato out into a bowl with your butter. The hot potato should help melt the butter. Reserve the skins and tops.

3. Put the spinach in a saucepan with only the water that clings to the leaves, stir occassionally & cook untill just tender. Drain (really squeeze out as much excess water as possible) and chop.

4. Mash the potato adding the sour cream, and riccotta. Once mashed well, mix in the parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, spring onions, spinach and parsley and season with Attitude Foods Horopito Hit seasoning.

5. Spoon the mixture into the potato shells so it is full to over flowing and place the lid on top.

6. These can then be reheated and/or baked in the oven ... about 20minutes.

Great with a homemade tomato chutney on the side for colour & flavour!

Note from Sarah Uhl

This recipe came from years ago when I was travelling through England, and came across an amazing cafe experience, “Cranks in the Market”. This cafe has had a strong influence on me from Fat Dog days and still now. We did a version of this Potato at fat dog, but here is a more refined version using my secret ingredient ‘Horopito Hit seasoning’ and a product from Clevedon, which brings another whole new and exciting meaning to Ricotta cheese. Potatoes are a good hearty food, if there was only one food in the world you could eat I would choose the potato!
