Basic Jacket Potatoes

IngredientsEquipment
1 medium potato for each person
Foil
1 teaspoon of oil for each potato
Baking tray

Heat oven to 200C, gas 6

Wash the potatoes and and stab with a knife 4 times.

Rub with the oil and wrap in foil

Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for approximately 40 – 50 mins, or until they feel soft.

To serve, cut an “X” in the top of the potato and with thumb and forefinger of both hands push upwards on the skin to expose some of the flesh.

These can also be cooked in a microwave. Just wash and stab with a knife a couple of times. Place on a microwave suitable plate and cook for initially 6 minutes and then on 2 minutes bursts, they are ready when they feel soft.
