Jacket Potato with Beans and Coleslaw

Preparation time: 5 mints
Cooking time: 45-50 mints
Serves – 4

Ingredients
4 baking potatoes
1 tbsp oil
salt
pepper

For Serving
1 can baked beans (400 grm)
home made coleslaw

Method

  1. Scrub the potatoes and prick in several places with a fork.
  2. Place in a microwave bag and microwave it for 15 minutes on high.
  3. Pre heat oven to 200C/180C.
  4. Cook the potatoes until tender (you may need a more or less time depending on the size of your potatoes and your microwave).
  5. Once potatoes are done put a few drops of oil over each one and rub it all over the skin.
  6. After that, rub in some salt and pepper – salt will draw out the moisture from the skin and, together with the oil, provide more crunchiness.
  7. Now place the potatoes straight on to the centre shelf of the oven and let them bake for 30 minutes, or until the skins are really crisp.
  8. Serve immediately because, after you remove jacket potatoes from the oven, they lose their crispness very quickly.

Serving

  1. Split open the potatoes and spoon in the beans.
  2. Take some coleslaw with it.
  3. Serve immediately.
