Jacket Potatoes Recipe



Jacket Potatoes Recipes

Ingredients :

4 medium sized potatoes

Method :

Wash potatoes well, do not peel. Prick several times with a fork or skewer. For a crispy skin: do not cover. For a softer skin: wrap potatoes in foil. Bake the potatoes for 45-60 minutes or until tender when tested with a skewer. Alternatively, wash and with a fork prick potatoes and cook uncovered in the microwave on 'high' for 12 minutes, turning them over halfway through cooking. Serve plain or try some of the following delicious fillings, or a combination of your own.

Cheese and Pastrami

Slice tops off potatoes and scoop out flesh, leaving 4 firm shells. Cut 2 small, thin slices of pastrami into the strips and mix with 60g grated low fat block cheese, the flesh from potatoes and 2 tablespoons low fat milk. Add a little ground black pepper, spoon back into potato shells and reheat in oven for about 5-10 minutes.

Cottage cheese or yoghurt and chives

Split open tops of potatoes and place 1/2 tablespoon cottage cheese or low fat natural yoghurt in each. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve immediately.

Tomato and onion

Sautee 1 finely chopped onion in a little water, add 1 medium chopped tomato, 1/2 tsp chopped fresh basil or oregano and a pinch of ground black pepper. Mix with flesh from potatoes, spoon into potato shells and reheat in oven for about 5-10 minutes.

Spicy Yogurt

Combine the flesh of potatoes with 2 tablespoons low fat natural yoghurt and a pinch each of ground ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Spoon back into potato shells and reheat in oven for about 5-10 minutes.

Serves 4 - 6
