These indulgent spuds are a take on another recipe of mine and my favourite (and cheesiest!) way to have roasted potatoes and possibly one of the most hands-off ways to prepare them!


  • 6 medium potatoes, washed
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 250  g full-cream plain cottage cheese
  • 200  g Cheddar, grated
  • 200   g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 T paprika
  • 10  g chives, finely chopped, for serving
  • 300  g leeks, sliced and fried

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and rub with half the olive oil and season. Roast the potatoes for 25–30 minutes or until cooked through.

2. Using the back of a serving spoon, gently squash the potatoes to create a well on each surface. In a mixing bowl, combine the cottage cheese with half the Cheddar, half the mozzarella and half the chives.

3. Top the potatoes with a bit of the fried leeks, then spoon over the cheesy mixture. Top with the remaining grated cheese and a sprinkling of paprika. Roast for 15 minutes or until bubbling and golden.
