Ingredients

  • 4 baking potatoes (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) milk
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) light herbed cream cheese
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) salt and pepper
  • 3 oz (90 g) ham diced
  • 3 oz (90 g) pastrami diced
  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) frozen corn
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) Cheddar cheese

Method

Scrub potatoes; prick all over with fork. Microwave at high, turning potatoes halfway through, until tender, about 14 minutes.

Cut off top third lengthwise of each potato; scoop out larger portion into bowl, leaving about 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick walls. Scoop out potato from tops into bowl; discard top skins.

Add milk, cream cheese, salt and pepper to potatoes; mash until smooth. Stir in ham, corn and half of the onions.

Scoop mashed potatoes back into skins, mounding tops. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining onions.

Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven or toaster oven until hot and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
