Roasted potato skins with garlicky cheese dip

all details

Desiree potatoes work well, but avoid any potatoes with a green tinge. Use the cooked potato flesh for mash, chowder or gnocchi. Serve the skins with this garlicky fresh cheese dip, or top with anything from bacon and blue cheese to salmon caviar.

Ingredients

5 medium-large potatoes, scrubbed

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt and pepper

100g soft goat's cheese or feta, crumbled

100g yoghurt

1 garlic clove, finely grated

1 tsp red wine vinegar

2 tbsp chopped chives

Method

1. Heat the oven to 200C.

2. Coat the potatoes in 1 tablespoon olive oil and prick all over with a fork. Bake on the oven rack for 1 hour until tender inside and crisp outside.

3. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise into quarters and scoop out the flesh, leaving a 5-millimetre layer of flesh next to the skin. Brush lightly with 1 tablespoon olive oil and scatter with sea salt and pepper.

4. Bake on the oven rack at 200C for 25 to 30 minutes or until crisped and brown.

5. Whisk or whiz the goat's cheese, yoghurt, garlic, vinegar and chives with sea salt, pepper and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve alongside.
