to serve 4:
4 large or 8 medium
4 oz
4 oz
Cheddar cheese
2 oz
breakfast sausages (about one sausage)
spring onion
12 rashers (slices)
smoked streaky bacon (side bacon)
salt and pepper


How to Cook Roast Potato Bombs

  1. Roughly chop the cheese, remove the skin from the sausage and finely chop the spring onion. Wash and dry the potatoes then, using an apple coring tool (available in any cook shop) take out a core lengthways from each potato, saving the cores.
  2. Using your fingers, push a mixture of butter, cheese, sausage and onion into each potato. Cut the potato cores in two and use one half at each end to block the hole so that the mix is totally contained within the potato. Wrap each potato with bacon rashers (slices) and then wrap in aluminium foil.
  3. Roast Potato BombsBake in the centre of a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 5 - 375ºF - 190ºC) for 1¼ - 1¾ hours until the potatoes are cooked. The cooking time will depend on the size of your potatoes, smaller potatoes being cooked in about 1¼ hours while bigger potatoes will take longer.
  4. Once you are used to cooking roast potatoes, you will know just by giving them a gentle squeeze when they are done (they should give way slightly when squeezed between finger and thumb). If you are not used to it, insert a fork into one of the potatoes; it should go in easily without being forced. Remove the foil, cut the potatoes in two, lengthways, and serve hot with sour cream.

Roast Potato Bombs work well on a barbeque, too. You can cook them over the coals then keep them warm at the edges of the barbeque while you cook your meat.

Reviews of Roast Potato Bombs

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again August 22 2014
Oh no. When the wife saw this, no potato was safe from her apple corer. Totally awesome idea with unlimited filling possibilities. We made this together with the kids for the first time a few weeks ago and used lowfat cheese and turkey bacon. The kids now make this recipe often when they are making their own lunches. You get my vote!
