Potato fillings are a great way to add flavour and texture to an otherwise boring jacket potato. They can be used in a variety of ways and we recommend that you experiment with them until you find what you like best.
The humble jacket potato can be a filling and nutritious meal, but it can also be a boring one. Luckily, there are plenty of delicious potato fillings you can try to make it more exciting.
Wash and dry the skins and pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Fan setting. Coat the potatoes in some vegatable or rapeseed oil. This will help to crisp the skins but stop them becoming dry and cardboardy. Bake them in the Oven for 45-60 minutes.
Did you know you can also cook them in a slow cooker? Just oil the potatoes as before but line the bottom of your slow cooker with aluminium foil. Put on high for the first hour then turn it down to Hot or cook for another 2-3 hours.
An extra quick way of cooking them is to wrap in kitchen paper and blast in the microwave for 5 minutes then give them another 15 mins in a hot oven to crisp up the skins.
