Cheesy Jacket Potatoes

Jacket potatoes filled with cheese are one of the most popular ways to eat a baked potato. When I was a child, we had cheesy jacket potatoes quite often, where the soft, fluffy inside had been scooped out, mashed with cheese, put back in the skin, and baked until crispy. Yummy

A recipe for cheesy potatoes is barely a recipe at all, but perhaps useful for new cooks, or it’s possible that you haven’t come across this delicacy before! You can bake potatoes in the oven, or microwave the potatoes, stuff them, and either enjoy them as they are or blast them in the oven to get lovely crispy bits
