  1. Wash the potatoes and pat them dry. Prick the skins with a fork and put the potatoes on a baking tray. Brush them with oil.
  2. Bake the potatoes until they are soft. Medium-sized potatoes will take about one hour in an oven heated to 200 ◦C.
  3. Once they are cool enough to handle, cut off the tops and carefully take out the soft potato centres.
  4. Mash the soft centres with butter, milk and cheese. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, then fill the mixture back into the potato skins.
  5. Sprinkle with cheese and cook the potatoes on the grill over a few minutes until they are golden.
  6. Make a nose and whiskers with half a tomato or carrot held in place with a cocktail stick and chives tucked behind (see the images for details).
  7. Finish decorating with raisins eyes, radish/cucumber ears and spring onion tails.
