2 large baking potatoes, weighing about 8 oz each
2 red onions, halved
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
salt and black pepper
1 Tbsp butter or 1–2 Tbsp milk
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Scrub and score the potatoes, then place them in 2 small roasting pan with the onions. Drizzle the onions with olive oil then bake for 1 hour, or until the potatoes are done.
- Slice the potatoes in half and scoop the soft centers out into a food processor. Add the baked onion, most of the cheese, seasonings, and butter or milk and process until smooth in consistency.
- Pile the filling back into the potatoes, top with the remaining cheese, and return to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or brown lightly under a hot broiler.
