4 baking potatoes
110g plain quark
1 bunch spring onions
200g can sweetcorn kernels, drained
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp freshly chopped chives
Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
Scrub the potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place directly on the oven shelf and bake for about 1 hour, until tender and cooked through. Allow to cool for 20 minutes (until they’re cool enough to handle but still warm).
Cut the potatoes in half then scoop the flesh out into a bowl. Mash with a fork and stir in the quark. Allow the skins and mashed flesh to cool completely.
Meanwhile, trim and finely chop the white and green parts of the spring onions and place in a bowl. Mix with the sweetcorn and a little seasoning.
Once the mashed potato is cooled, stir in the sweetcorn mixture and then pack back into the skins. Squash the bases lightly so they stand well. Cover and chill until required.
To serve, arrange the filled skins on a baking sheet, brush with the beaten egg and return to the oven (preheated to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6) for 20-25 minutes, until heated through and golden. Sprinkle with the chives to serve with a side of speedy salad.
