A Favourite Yummy Easy Baked Potato With Toppings Recipe

Baked Potatoes With Corned Beef & Cheese Topping

Good morning, dear friends πŸ˜€

Potatoes are a real favourite in my home, especially with the kids – french fries, German Potato Salad, Potato Skins, Potato Chips, Stewed Chicken with potatoes….well, you get the idea! πŸ˜†

I have seen many versions of potatoes cooked this way, but I first learned about this recipe from my dear Romanian friend, Rose. and her recipe had cheese and ham. For me, I just varied the toppings and worked with whatever ingredients I had at that time.

Although I called it Baked Potatoes With Toppings, in actual fact the potatoes were steamed until cooked, when a knife can be easily pierced through them.

Here is my recipe for the potatoes that I had cooked for my Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony mini party. Hope you like it – I know kids will. πŸ˜€

Baked Potatoes With Corned Beef & Cheese Topping

Ingredients –

2 kg potatoes (any amount you like but I would suggest you make a lot of these as they go very fast and they keep well in the fridge for the next day’s snack)

Some grated cheese (I had mozzarella then, but cheddar or parmesan would work nicely, too)

1 can Corned Beef

1 medium onion, peeled and chopped

salt and pepper

2 tbsps of oil

* Optional – chopped tomatoes or tomato salsa and green onions for garnishing

Method –

1) Scrub the skin of the potatoes until clean and steam them until they are done, about 20 minutes over medium heat. You can boil them, too, but with this method, you will have to keep an eye on the potatoes to make sure that they don’t get overdone and burst from the skin.

2) While the potatoes are cooking, in a non-stick pan, heat up the oil and cook the chopped onions for aboout 2 minutes.

3) Add in the corned beef and stir thoroughly to cook for about 3 to 5 minutes.

4) Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius or 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

5) Cut the potatoes into halves lengthwise and place them onto a baking tray.

6) Rub a little salt onto the top of the potato halves.

7) Top with some grated cheese, followed by the corned beef and then a good shake of pepper.

8 ) Baked for about 5 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted and slightly brown.

Bon Appetit! πŸ˜€
