Salmon Mornay Baked Potatoes
4 large potatoes
1 T plain flour
½ C milk
½ C grated tasty cheese
300g hot smoked salmon, flaked
1 T chopped fresh chives, plus extra to serve
- Preheat oven to 200° Pierce the potatoes and place directly onto the oven rack. Bake for 1 to 1½ hours or until fork tender and skin is crisp. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
- Cut potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out the flesh. Press flesh through a sieve into a bowl (or mash really well). Add cream and 2 T of the butter and stir until smooth. Season well with salt. When cooled slightly, transfer potato mixture to a piping bag fitted with a fluted nozzle.
- Heat butter and flour in a small saucepan until combined. Add milk and stir until thickened. Add cheese, stir until smooth, and season with salt. Add the salmon and chives.
- Place the potato shells on a lined baking tray and fill with salmon mixture. Pipe the potato mixture on top. Bake for 10 minutes or until warmed through. Turn on oven grill and cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden. Sprinkle with extra chives to serve.
