  • 3 Large potatoes
  • 1 Packet of bacon lardons
  • Some cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tub of sour cream
  • 1 Bunch of spring onions
  • 1 White onion
  • 1 Bag of spinach (Or rocket)

This recipe places the humble potato as the central part of the dish with a gorgeous stuffing and an absolutely savage taste. I'm somewhat sexist when I call them match day potatoes for the boys because that assumes that girls don't watch matches but you get my drift. These would work just as well for a movie night, having friends over or whatever group activity you are taking part in male or female. The real beauty is you can lash them together in advance and have them ready to just fuck in to the oven when the guests walk in the door. Cheep, cheerful, full of flavour and they'll have your mates licking their lips looking for more.


This is the sort of recipe that you can put together in advance and impress your mates when you just pull it out of the oven. It tastes absolutely incredible. Why go to the pub and pay 10 quid each for a portion of these when you can spend a tenner and feed about 6 people. This is pub grub at it's very best and you can sit back and enjoy the movie / match / chat knowing that you are pretty much a pro chef now! Well done!!!
