Method

  1. Set the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Scrub and dry 4 large baking potatoes (about 250g-300g each). Prick them in several places with a fork.
  2. Bake directly on the oven shelf for 1 1⁄2 - 2 hours, until they feel soft when you squeeze them.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling: Cook a peeled, chopped and diced onion in 1 tbsp oil for 3-4 mins. Add 400g lean minced beef and fry for 5 mins. Add a 400g can of chopped tomatoes, a crushed beef stock cube and 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 30 mins to make a thick sauce. Season well.
  4. Halve the baked potatoes lengthways, scoop out the flesh into a large bowl, add seasoning and a good knob of butter, and mash well. Spoon mince mixture in to the potato shells on a baking tray, then top with the mash. Sprinkle with about 45g grated Cheddar cheese. Put back in the oven to bake for 15-20 mins, or brown under the grill.
