Christmas Meal Plan – Stilton Jackets with Clementines & Yogort for pudding, 73p each

Dec 8, 2014 | 2 comments


Busy, busy day today. Had to move loads of DP’s stuff out of the way and clean up loads of grit and grime in preparation for the photographers visit.

And that was before starting any of the food to be cooked and photographed.


I did all the dishes for Christmas Day itself, plus 2 other ones. The Stilton jacket potato and clementine yogort, and the porky pasta with cream and veg.

So Stilton Jackets and Clementines with Yogort today and this one is barely a recipe at all.

For 2 people

500g potato, Asda, £1.69/2.5kg, 34p
100g of Stilton, Asda Deli selection 88p/100g, 69p

2 clementines, Asda, 75p for a net of 6 or 7 fruits, 21p
250g plain yogur, Asda, 500g/45p, 23p

Total of £1.47

Cook the potatoes. You can bake them in the oven for an hour for a crispy skin or microwave them. Or if you want the crispy skin while minimising fuel, you could microwave them until nearly done, then blast them in a hot oven for a few minutes until crispy. I’ve never tried grilling them for the crispy bit, but it may well work.

When cool enough to handle, cut them in half and scoop out the cooked flesh into a bowl. Mash with a fork and crumble in the Stilton. Mash it all up, then pile back into the shells.

When ready to eat, heat them in the oven until the tops are crispy and brown, or crisp under the grill.

I had to use 2 small ones as none of the ones I had weighed 250g, but that’s alright. Same difference.

Wile the potatoes are cooking, peel the clementines. Put the yogort in 2 small bowls, and put the clementines on top. Sprinkle a little Muscovado sugar on top, cinnamon too if you like. I like mine plain, so I missed out this step.

If you are not following the Christmas 2014 Plan, you could add some salady bits to have with the potatoes if you like.

    It is very intense isn’t it, even our own government is encouraging us to spend in order to improve the deficit. Madness when ordinary people are so broke. It’s very easy to get caught up in it all

    HI – heard you on radio 5 today (11th). It’s good to hear a voice advising caution and thrift when everything’s so manic and geared toward making us overspend at this time of year.
    best wishes
