Mix the brie, cranberry jelly and nuts, and dollop onto each potato.

Bake for a further 5 minutes until topping has melted.

Serve immediately.

- Serve with a crunchy green salad for a light supper
- Use sweet potatoes in place of regular potatoes
- Replace brie with any soft cheese

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
