Chorizo & goats cheese stuffed potato skins

I would be the first person to admit that I am a bit of a glutton. I have only finished one meal and I am thinking what am I going to have for my next. I just love food. I love the planning, shopping, cooking and most of all the consuming of it. I don’t like rushing at meal times and I hate wasting calories on boring sandwiches or ready meals. Almost everything we eat here is made from scratch and I love being in control of my children’s diets. There are so many overweight children these days it really saddens me and without a doubt fast food & convenience meals are to be blamed. It’s so easy to throw a healthy meal together in a matter of minutes so there is no excuse for not doing it. If children are not taught basic skills such as this from an early age there is not much hope for future generations.
Anyway enough of my ranting and on to today’s lunch for myself and the little woman. I love baked potatoes and even better again is the delicious stuffed potato, completely delicious and filling enough to keep you going till dinner time.

For two servings you will need;

2 baking potatoes
100g chorizo
75g goats cheese
Handful of peas

Bake the potatoes in the oven for an hour or until they yield when squeezed.
Fry the chorizo in a pan, no need to add any oil as there is enough in the chorizo.
Cut the cooked potatoes in half and scoop out the flesh, add to the chorizo. Return the skins to the oven.
Add the peas and the majority of the goats cheese to the potato filling and stir well to combine.
Remove skins from oven and fill with the chorizo mixture. Top with remaining goats cheese and serve on a bed of rocket.
Simple, delicious, filling & far from boring!

    These spuds sound fab. I’m a huge fan of goatscheese. Yum.
    Totally agree with your sentiment too, it’s so easy to pull together a simple home-made meal rather than reaching for a ready meal. It really is something kids should be taught from a young age.
