Cowbridge Kitchen

The humble Jacket potato or Baked potato is a great source of Carbohydrates and the toppings you can add to this are pretty much endless , Jacket potato and Cheese , Ham , Tuna or baked beans.

In this recipe for Baked Potatoes we are going to do things a little differently, firstly we will cook the Jacket Potato in the traditional way but then we are going to scoop out the potato and make a mash filling.

The idea is that we will load up the empty potato skins with a creamy mash and double bake them.

These jacket potatoes are great served with Creamy Homemade Coleslaw.
