Twice Baked Jackets with Gorgonzola Walnuts & Basil

This is probably my favourite potato dish, apart from a steaming bowl of freshly dug, boiled new potatoes smothered in fresh mint butter.


  • 4 large jacket potatoes, warm, cut in half and scored
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the Topping
  • 220g gorgonzola
  • 150g walnuts, chopped
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 small red onions finely chopped and cooked for 10 minutes to soften
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp panko breadcrumbs

  • Pre-heat the grill to high heat.
  • Season the halved potatoes really well.
  • Heat a large frying pan and add a little olive oil, add the potatoes cut side down and cook for 10 minutes to take a really nice colour.
  • Meanwhile mix the cheese, nuts, basil, egg yolks, breadcrumbs and cooked onion together.
  • Once the spuds are cooked, turn over spoon on the cheese mix evenly over the 8 halves.
  • Pop under the grill for 2-3 minutes to just half melt the cheese.
  • Serve.
