Always have a parent or carer with you when working in the kitchen
Specialist tools needed: "apple corer" (easily found at stores such as Dunelm
This is a great recipe for any cub, beaver, families & carers to try (& have fun with), we've made these ourselves & they are lovely!
You will need some good size baking potatoes & an adult with you to help with coring the apple to make the "stuffing space" inside the potatoes, filled with yummy ingredients, pretty much whatever takes your fancy, (& you have hanging around in the fridge).
Watch the video, you could make some ready for a BBQ, around a camp fire, or to make ready for cooking in the oven, it's your choice & fun food!
I love mine with bacon on the inside, spring onions & grated cheese or mozzarella, with salt & pepper mixed in! ..& bacon on the outside.
If you oven cook these, still wrap them in tin foil to make them crispier, & have a good rich coleslaw (we recommend Morrisons 'slaw) & these are no longer simply bland potatoes, in fact, before I tried these I used to make every excuse not to eat a baked spud, ..now I can't get enough of them.
Note, when using an apple corer go from the longest point end to end, if it doesn't come straight through, push it as far as it will co & then bang it "point down" on a chopping board, often it will make a raised mark on the potato inside & upon removing the corer you'll be able to see exactly where to re-insert it to finish the job!
Anyway watch the video to get an idea then grab a grown up & make up a batch of potato bombs! i'm drooling each time I see the video! ..simple cheap, filling, fun! ..& possible to use towards badgework! such as your Chef badge!
Give it a go these will soon be a family favourite, ..baked potatoes will never be the same again!
Look out for some more recipes soon, don't forget to try this one, it doesn't get simpler than this!
Try Dunelm for an apple corer, they have a good range of well priced kitchenware, ..it's worth buying a corer for this recipe alone, because once you find out what your favourite potato filling is, these will become a regular on your "what you want for supper" list, & can be prepared in advance & stored in the fridge until ready to bake off!
