The Wonderful Potato!

Cooking Together

The Potato is a wonderful food!

There are so many ways to enjoy the humble potato.
For a warming lunch on a cold day, the "Baked Potato" or "Jacket Potato" is a favourite for so many of us!

Watch our slide show and see how we prepared a delicious meal. Everyone agreed it is one of our best ever sessions!

The potatoes were pre baked in the oven for 60-75 minutes at 200 degrees.

Once we had prepared them with our chosen filling we put them back in the oven (200 degrees) for a further 15 minutes until golden brown!

The Jacket Potato!
Each baked potato serves 2 people!
55g butter
Salt & pepper to season
Slices of cooked ham/chicken
115g Grated Chedder Cheese.

Follow the slide show! Cut each potato along the length. You will see how we scooped out the cooked potato, being careful to preserve the skins as serving dishes! Then we put the meat of choice into the pototo shells, spooned in the seasoned mash and topped with grated cheese. When baked these Jacket Potatoes came out of the oven they didn't last long! Not a dish left in sight!

We started with pre-cooked potatoes, ready to peel and mash!
It was simple after that!
Simply Delicious!
