Preheat oven to 220°C / 200°C fan / gas mark 7. Rub potatoes in a little oil, prick with a fork several times all over then bake for about 40 minutes to 1 hour until soft in the centre and the skin is crispy.

Meanwhile, finely chop the left over vegetables, leeks and turkey/chicken into small bite size pieces. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and sauté left over leeks, veg and turkey, until piping hot. If you don't have any leftover leeks, sauté 2 freshly, finely chopped leeks first for about 10 minutes: leeks ensure a good balanced flavour.

Stir in the cream once completely heated through and cook for another minute, allowing cream to thicken slightly, then remove from heat. Chop the fresh parsley and stir in.

Cut the cooked potatoes in half, fluff up the contents and add the creamy vegetable and meat topping. Grate the cheese and top each of the potato halves with cheese, then put back in the oven for another 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.
