Baked Potato Snowman

Section: Lunch ideas
  • Serves: 1 Snowman
  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

Method

  1. Prick the potatoes with a fork. Cook the potatoes in the microwave for 10 to 12 minutes on full power or in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour 200C/400 F (Gas 6) until cooked through in the middle.
  2. Cut a thin slice off the bases of the potatoes. Scoop out some of the cooked potato, making sure you leave a 1.5cm border.
  3. Slice the butternut squash into small cubes. Cook in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes until soft. Mix half of the squash with the scooped out potato flesh and mash together. Season to taste and add the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Stuff both of the potatoes with the squash mixture.
  5. Put the large potato onto a plate and put the small potato on top to make the snowman’s head.
  6. Attach a small baby carrot for the nose and for the hat, attach peas for the eyes and for the buttons (you could use a dab of cream cheese as glue) and cut a smiley shaped mouth from a strip of red pepper.
