Kerry Gold Dubliner is a delicious, semi-strong cheese from Ireland available in most major grocery stores, but old cheddar will do in a pinch. These skins are hearty enough to do double duty as a side dish with cabbage and corned beef.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Scrub and rinse potatoes and bake directly on the oven rack for about 1 hour or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half, scoop out the potato, leaving a little layer on the skins. (Keep the scooped out potato for use in soups or for mashing). Cut each half into two strips, and place on baking sheet.
Sprinkle a bit of the cheese thinly over potato strips. Top with ham or bacon, a sprinkling of green onion and top it off with the rest of the cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden.
