Easy Stuffed Jacket Potatoes
Stuffed Jacket Potatoes (or JACK POT as Mrs Hinch would say) are the most perfect, quick, easy and get ahead supper you could ever wish to meet :-).
Is this the best stuffed Jacket potato recipe?
Well I think so. Almost loaded Potato skins I think you could say..
Make ahead Potatoes
They are what I would call the perfect football tea.
You know the one you can make ahead, go out, come home and bang in the oven for 30 minutes.
I have never come across anyone, kids or adults who don’t love these.
They are creamy, tasty and deliciously filling!
AND SO FLIPPING EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY!
What shall we stuff these jacket potatoes with?
And you can stuff them with anything – the most versatile Potato get ahead dinner ever!
Bacon, sausage, mushrooms, cheese, ham – oh anything
I just love potatoes, I guess I’m a carb queen and I have to say this is one of my favourite ways to eat potatoes. Having said that my Roast Potato recipe is another fave, perfect crunchy potatoes yum!
Look let me just put it out there. I LOVE potatoes, in any form whatsoever, I just cannot help it!
These beauties are especially wonderful and useful recipe for Bonfire Night and Halloween! (I also tend to make them post Christmas with the left over cheese).
So easy and you can feed a whole bunch of peeps!
Simply get a massive tray and bang them in! I love to serve them with baked beans. But also lovely with coleslaw and salad.
Please give them a try. I love to try and develop easy filling tasty suppers for you and your family.
I hope and I think this one certainly hits the spot!
I’d love to know what you think!
Freeze your stuffed Jacket Potatoes
They are also a really great midweek supper, make them at the weekend when the ovens on and either pop them in the fridge or freezer unbaked and you get a wonderful relatively low cost supper!
I also make a whole batch and freeze in 2’s.
Then on the day you want them, in the morning remove from the freezer – leave to defrost
When you come home from work, top with grated cheese and bang in a hot oven for 30 minutes
And potatoes are a great source of fibre with their skins on as well as being naturally fat-free and Gluten free.
