Cheat’s Mash in Jackets and Loaded Skins

From the Restaurant at Home cookbook:

Two meals in one: mashed potato and loaded skins:

Jacket potato Mini sandwich spiral roll appetizers

(Serves 4)

To speed up the baking process of the potatoes, microwave them first: 4 large potatoes at full power for around 10 minutes

Rub some cooking oil on the potatoes and sprinkle them with salt. Do not pierce the potato skins

Place the potatoes directly onto the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 60-90 minutes at 190c, turning half way through, until a sharp knife passes through the flesh

Remove the potatoes from the oven and cut them into halves. Add a generous blob of butter to each halved potato and mash the filling in the skins. Scrape the filling out of the skins and serve as mash immediately, or store for future reheating. The mash will have a “baked” flavour (surprising that)

For the skins, which can be cooked immediately or chilled for future use:

Fill the potato skins with cheese and anything you have lying around or fancy (bacon is good)

Bake in a baking tray at 190c for 10-15 minutes

Two meals in one: done.
