  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Rub 1 tsp of oil over the potatoes, place on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt. Prick the potatoes once or twice each. Bake for 1 hr to 1 hr 15 mins until the skin is crispy and golden.
  2. When the potatoes are almost cooked, heat the remaining oil in a pan and gently fry the red onion and tomatoes until soft. Then add the barbecue sauce, shredded ham hock and baked beans and cook until hot. Cook for 1 min more to ensure the heat has fully dispersed, then remove from the heat.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt and chives until combined.
  4. Make a cross-cut in each potato and fill with the beans. Scatter over the mozzarella, allowing it to melt over the hot filling. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a wedge of lime.

Tip: Looking to spice things up? Simply swap the ham hock for a 130g pack diced chorizo, fried in a dry frying pan until golden and crisp, then stir through the bean mixture.
