  •  KW from Auckland has a favourite potato recipe to share with others. You need 6 large potato, 1 pkt cream of chicken soup mix, 250 gr sour cream, 1/2 cup grated cheese, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup chopped spring onions, and Salt and Pepper to taste. Partly cook then grate potatoes.  combine butter, soup, milk , sour cream, onions and grated cheese.  Combine with seasonings and potatoes Pile into lightly greased pie dish, top with a thin layer of breadcrumbs and a little more grated cheese and bake for about 45 mins. at 180 degs.


  • Most the year round you can get away without peeling the potatoes - even a little trimming is okay. When the boiled potatoes are cooked, smash them the usual way. -  Faye, Auckland.

  • Here are some of the tips I use when cooking potatoes. If I am need to bake potatoes fast I precook then in boiling water for about 10 or 15 minutes. I coat them with cooking oil before placing on a roasting dish. It reduces the baking time to less than ten minutes. Another trick is to put a metal skewer through the potato. The skewer acts as a heat conductor that delivers heat to the centre of the potato. -
