Jacket potatoes are stupid simple! However, using an oven is expensive and long winded. This recipe cuts out the oven and produces a better outcome. It’s cheaper and faster than Just Eat.
Four slices of Cheddar cheese1 (or, do your own slices. Why not?)
Prick potato all over put in microwave for 5 minutes
Cut in half and scour, criss-cross, deeply.
Cover the surfaces with cheese slices. Pressing in.
Put it under grill until cheese bubbles and soaks into the potato
Get it out and scatter chilli powder (to taste) across both halves
Put back under grill for a minute or so
A glorious jacket potato full of flavour and texture
Just a plate and knife and fork to wash up
