Healthy, because

Even smarter

Potatoes are one of the staple foods and rightly so. They have long-chain carbohydrates that saturate us. Who would have thought that potatoes contain as much vitamin C as an apple? Gouda scores with a good portion of calcium. We need this mineral for firm cooking and teeth. In addition, the cheese is rich in protein. With 26 grams of protein per 100 grams of cheese, it is a real booster for muscle growth for fitness fans.

Bacon scores especially with its taste, healthwise it is rather not recommended due to its saturated fats. A healthier alternative is to cut chickpeas in half instead, roast them in a pan without fat and season them with salt and pepper. You can eat the baked potatoes as the main component of a meal together with a salad or as a side dish for barbecuing.

Preparation steps


Preheat the oven to 200°C (approximately 400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse the potatoes, halve lengthwise, and place cut side down on the baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.


Grate the cheese and mix with the crème fraîche, corn, and the ham. Rinse and trim the scallions. Thinly slice and mix into the cheese mixture.


Turn the potatoes over and cover with the cheese mixture. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until browned on top.


Remove from the oven and serve with sour cream, if you'd like.
