  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1,5 tbsp dairy butter
  • 100 g (0,22 lb) eschalot
  • handful spinach
  • 1/4 glass of sour cream
  • 60 g (0,13 lb) cream cheese
  • 1/4 glass of bryndza
  • vegetable oil (for baking)
  • salt – to taste
  • ground black pepper – to taste


Scrub potatoes clean, grease them with vegetable oil and place on an oven rack. Bake the potato at 180°C (356°F) for 45-60 minutes. Then cut each potato in half lengthwise and set aside to let the potato cool enough to handle.

Peel eschalot, chop and fry it on dairy butter. Next add chopped spinach and cook the ingredients 2-3 minutes.

Scoop out the potato pulp by the help of a spoon. Add chopped cheese, shredded bryndza, sour cream, the prepared eschalot and spinach. Mix everything thoroughly and then season the stuffing with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle the potato skins with oil, arrange them skin-side down on a baking sheet and place them in an oven for 5 minutes. After stuff the potato skins with filling and top with grated cheese. Bake the dish for 10-15 minutes till cheese is bubbling.

Serve the appetizer hot.

Enjoy your meal!
