  • 4 essential Waitrose baking potatoes
  • ½ essential Waitrose Savoy Cabbage, shredded
  • 350g tub essential Waitrose Cheese Sauce
  • 1 bunch salad onions, thinly sliced
  • 50g mature Cheddar, grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Prick the potatoes with a fork and microwave on full power for 12–15 minutes until soft.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the cabbage in a large pan of boiling water for 4 minutes until tender. Drain thoroughly.

  3. Halve the potatoes and scoop the flesh into a bowl, leaving a 5mm-thick shell. Mash the potato flesh then stir in the cheese sauce, cabbage and salad onions. Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells. Transfer to a baking sheet and scatter over the grated Cheddar. Bake for 20–25 minutes until piping hot and golden brown.

Cook’s tip

If you don’t have a microwave, bake the potatoes for 1 hour at 190ºC, gas mark 5 until tender before continuing with step 2. Try adding a spoonful of wholegrain mustard in with the cheese sauce.
