Double-Cheese Potatoes with Ham
Wrap each potato in a paper towel, place on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high setting 10 to 12 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the pulp of the potatoes. Use a clean dish cloth to hold the potatoes while scooping out hot potatoes.Advertisement
Return the "shells" to the microwave-safe plate. Place the potato pulp in a medium mixing bowl with the herb cheese, onions, oil (if using), pepper and salt. Using a fork or potato masher, mix until well blended. Gradually add the milk and mash until completely blended. Spoon potato mixture evenly among each shell; sprinkle evenly with the ham and cheese. Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Tip: The addition of the oil gives a bit more creaminess to the dish and an extra layer of flavor.
