kookin' with khanya

yesterday, my housemates and i had friends over for sunday lunch and this is one of the dishes that we prepared. i looooove to cook and i'll randomly share some of the things i'm experimenting with.
large potatoes, cheese (preferrably chedder), spring onion, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper, bacon, and butter. i like using garlic and herb flavored butter
microwave the potatoes for about 4 mins. be sure to puncture them with 
a fork so they don't explode
let them cool for a bit, then cut in half and scoop out some of the potatoe 
flesh, but be sure to leave enough to make sure your potatoes keep their shape
this is what they should look like. scoop the flesh into a big bowl
chop up some spring onion
add the sour cream to the scooped out potatoes
add cheese (about 2 cups, but its up to you), green onion, butter, milk (about 1 cup)
salt and pepper
mix it all together until smooth
scoop the mixture back into your potatoes
fry your bacon until it is crispy and golden 
cut your bacon into little peices
mix the cheese, spring onion and bacon together in a seperate bowl
sprinkle your mixture onto the scooped out potatoe
one of my housemates kelly trying out the potatoe mixture :)
place on a baking tray and place in the oven for about 15 minutes 
you're done and ready to serve!

hope its been helpful! if you try the baked potatoe out, let me know how it went!
