4 large well shaped potatoes

1teaspoon butter or margarine


1 tablespoon cream

White pepper

2 tablespoons chopped chives

4 tablespoons grated cheese



Scrub potatoes and place on middle shelf of a moderate oven for approximately 1 hour, or until soft in centre when a skewer is pressed into them. Cut potatoes in half and carefully scoop out all the white part, mash this to a cream in a mixing bowl with butter, milk, salt and pepper. Add chives, and fill potato shells with the mixture. Top with grated cheese and return to the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted, serve hot.
