Golden brown baked potatoes, and creamy smooth mashed potatoes. This recipe is about merging those 2 amazing elements of a potato together.
Place your potatoes on a baking tray lined with baking paper and lightly drizzle them with olive oil (just enough to coat them), then season generously with salt and pepper. Rub the oil and seasoning all over the potatoes
Cook the potatoes in the oven for 50-60 minutes until cooked all the way through. Take the potatoes out but don't turn the oven off because you'll need it later on.
Let the potatoes cool down for 5-10 minutes, then cut them in half lengthways.
Add your milk, your melted butter, a pinch of ground nutmeg, a pinch of ground coriander, 3 quarters of your chopped chives and a pinch of salt and pepper to the bowl with the potato flesh. Use a fork to mash the potato then mix everything together until well combined.
Line the baking tray with a new sheet of baking paper, put the potatoes on the tray and bake in the oven for a further 15-20) minutes.
