  2. Drain the potatoes in your colander and cool them under cold running water.
  3. Cut a block of cheese to the average thickness of the potatoes, and count out as many slices of bacon as you have potatoes.
  4. Use your apple corer to make a tunnel through the potatoes. Save the potato core.
  5. Use the corer to press out a core of cheese and press this into the potato.
  6. Wrap a slice of bacon around the potato to cover both holes and contain the cheese. Continue until all of the potatoes are assembled.

  9. While these grill, heat a half filled pan of oil to 180c or 350f and deep fry the potato cores until golden.
  10. Unwrap the potatoes, transfer to serving platters and top each one with its own crispy deep fried core before serving.
