• 6 large red delight potatoes

  • 90g butter

  • 300ml sour cream

  • 1 bunch chives, finely chopped

  • Salt to taste

  • 6 x 25cm square sheets of aluminium foil


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 200°C fan forced.

  • 2.

    Wash red delight potatoes thoroughly under warm water using a brush.

  • 3.

    With a fork, prick the red delight potatoes all the way round, approximately 4 to 6 times.

  • 4.

    Wrap each of the red delight potatoes in aluminium foil, place onto a baking tray and place in the oven, depending on the size, bake for about 50 minutes or until potatoes are cooked and soft in the centre.

  • 5.

    Take the red delight potatoes out of the oven and carefully remove the foil, place back onto the baking tray and return to the oven for a further 5 to 10 minutes.

  • 6.

    Place red delight potatoes onto serving plates, cut across the top and squeeze the sides to open them up.

  • 7.

    Using a fork fluff up the inside of the red delight potatoes sprinkle with salt, top with butter, sour cream and chives.

  • 8.

    Tip: Insert a skewer into the potatoes to check if they are cooked and soft in the centre.

  • 9.

    Variations: Instead of using plain butter try with herb and/or garlic butter, try with cottage cheese or ricotta.
