Vleesworst and Cheese Stuffed Potatoes Recipe

Ingredients with Measurements:
- 4 large baking potatoes
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped vleesworst (Dutch sausage)
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Salt and pepper to taste

Special equipment needed:
- Oven
- Baking sheet
- Mixing bowl
- Fork
- Knife

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Wash the potatoes and pat them dry. Use a fork to poke several holes in each potato.

3. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.

4. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated cheddar cheese, grated mozzarella cheese, chopped vleesworst, chopped green onions, sour cream, butter, salt, and pepper.

5. Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Then, slice off the top third of each potato and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, leaving a shell.

6. Mash the potato flesh with a fork and add it to the cheese and vleesworst mixture. Mix well.

7. Stuff the potato shells with the cheese and vleesworst mixture, using a spoon to pack it in tightly.

8. Place the stuffed potatoes back on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

9. Serve hot, garnished with additional chopped green onions if desired.

Tips and tricks:
- Make sure to poke holes in the potatoes before baking to allow steam to escape and prevent them from exploding.
