These are excellent to serve at a buffet, as they are so much easier to deal with than the unwieldy large jacket potatoes. The topping can vary, and for those with rather less time to spare for preparation I would recommend a soft cheese mixed with g
Jacket potatoes are cheap and filling but sometimes you want a change from grated cheese and baked beans! This recipe is packed with flavour for a very satisfying supper dish.
