Pimp your jacket (potato)

Just a quick one..

Fancy a jacket potato?

How about one that’s a little pimped up?

We like to bake our potatoes in the oven, but if you have a microwave and time is limited that would be the best option.

Ok. First of all take your baked potato out of the oven. (Usually baked for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs, depending on the size of the potato).

Turn on your grill.

Cut it open and scrape the potato into a bowl.

Next add butter, grated cheese and a little salt and pepper.

Mix together then put the potato back into its case.

We like to add tuna to our jackets, but you can just leave it as it is if you don’t fancy that.

Add some more grated cheese on top and place under the grill for a few minutes (keep an eye on it).

Your jacket will be ready once the cheese on top has melted and turned a little brown.

All done!

Place your potato on a plate. You can add a side salad or just eat it as is!

Quick, simple and tasty.

A little potato fact..

‘A baked potato is sometimes called a jacket potato in the United Kingdom. The baked potato has been popular in the UK for many years. In the mid-19th century, jacket potatoes were sold on the streets by hawkers during the autumn and winter months. In London, it was estimated that some 10 tons of baked potatoes were sold each day by this method.’ (Taken from Wikipedia)


How do you like your jacket potatoes?

Happy eating!
