i always said that while i was living here i would pass on trying jacket potatoes. everyone at work has them with beans, not very appetizing and there is a place in town that sells them…i just didn’t find them very interesting.
today for lunch i broke down and made a leftover potato, loaded with cheddar cheese melted under the grill…it was pretty darn good!!!
i may have to try some of these recipes
2 x 225g (8oz) British potatoes, scrubbed 1 x 15ml spn (1 tblspn) vegetable oil 2 large onions, sliced 175g-225g (6-8oz) British rump steak, cut into strips 1 x 5ml spn (1 tspn) dijon mustard 4 x 15ml spn (4 tblspn) red wine salt Freshly ground black pepper Freshly chopped parsley
or this one
Slices of mushrooms, Slices of ham, chopped Slices of onion, Slices of red pepper, Slices of tomato Grated cheese
- Scrub the potatoes and place in a pre-heated King Edward oven at approx 200°C.
- Cook for approximately 1 hour until thoroughly cooked.
- Prepare the fillings in advance and store in a cool container until required.
- Make a meal of your jacket by cutting the cooked potato almost in half and piling in some slices of mushroom, pepper, ham, onion, tomato – or whatever takes your fancy! Top with a little grated cheese and replace in the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has just melted.
- Those potatoes not served immediately can be transferred to the top display/storage area to stay hot until you are ready to serve them.
- Always use insulated oven gloves when handling hot potatoes and opening/closing the oven door.
should be easy enough!
