Potatoes in foil

Quantity :

4 to 8. Can be frozen.

Cooking time :

20 minutes

Preparation time:

30 minutes


  • 4 big potatoes
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (250 ml)
  • 2 chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons parsley (30 ml)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (30 ml)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Garnish with paprika


  1. Wash & dry potatoes. With a fork, pierce potatoes to avoid them bursting. Bake at 450 F (230 C) for an hour. Verify baking with a knife. Slightly cool. Cut in half vertically and empty with a spoon, leaving a 5 mm-thick skin.
  2. Mash the potatoes. Add half the grated cheese, keeping the rest for garnish. Fill in the potato shells and garnish with cheese. Sprinkle with paprika (can be prepared in advance and refrigerated up to this point).
  3. Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden.
