  1. Wash the potatoes and pat dry. Prick them all over with a fork and put on a baking tray. Brush them over with the oil.
  2. Bake the potatoes in an oven preheated to 200°C/400°F oven for about an hour until they are soft.
  3. Once potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut the tops off and carefully scoop out the soft potato centres.
  4. Mash the soft centres with the butter, milk, three quaters of the cheese, salt and pepper. Then pop the mixture back into the potato jackets.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the potatoes and cook under the grill for a few minutes until golden.
  6. Make a nose and whiskers with half a tomato held in place with a cocktail stick and chives tucked behind.
  7. Finish decorating with raisin eyes, radish ears and spring onion tails.
