Garlic mushrooms filling

  • 2 x 15ml spn (2tblspn) Cream cheese
  • 2 x 15ml spn (2tblspn) Freshly chopped herbs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Rub a little salt into the skins before baking to make them extra crispy. If cooking an ovenful of potatoes, increase the temperature to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7. Use metal skewers or baking prongs pushed through the potatoes to reduce the cooking time by up to a quarter.


  1. Select even-shaped potatoes and scrub.
  2. Place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6,
  3. After the potato has been cooking for about 1 hour, melt the butter, add the garlic and mushrooms and cook gently for 5 10 minutes depending on the variety, (wild mushrooms need to be cooked thoroughly)
  4. Stir in the cream cheese and continue cooking for 1 minute. Add the herbs and season to taste
  5. When the potatoes are cooked cut them almost in half lengthways and spoon in the mushroom sauce.
