The Jacket Potato


There’s nothing like a jacket potato to keep you going through tough study periods, plus they’re cheap and super easy to do. Here’s how to do it right:

You will need:

  • Just one baking potato (usually come in packs of 4, bigger than your average)
  • Butter and/or your topping of choice, to serve.

The steps:

  1. Take a fork to your potato and give it a good pricking.
  2. Pop your potato on a microwave safe dish and microwave for about 10 minutes. Turn your oven on and up to 200C.
  3. Take the potato out of the microwave, off the dish and into the oven on the rack. Leave it in for about 45 minutes.
  4. Once your potato is cooked, plate it up and cut a cross into the top. Using something to cover your hands, squeeze the bottom in to pop the top open.
  5. Add your choice of topping, maybe some beans, maybe some cheese or maybe some beans and cheese?

Jackets are super versatile and go with basically anything, our bolognese is a particularly good addition!
