Potatoes in their jacket

I had this simple recipe for some baked potatoes that i tried out yesterday. The ingredients needed were:

- 3 medium potatoes
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- 50g grated cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- Bacon bits

First of all, clean the potatoes thoroughly but do not remove the skins. I used a fork to prick the skin. Then i put them in the oven for 1 hour to bake in 220 degrees celsius. While waiting for the potatoes to bake, i got the other ingredients ready. I cheated by buying slices of cheddar cheese and cut them into smaller pieces.

After that i melted the butter



I bought bacon chips from EuroDeli, Jusco. So i just fried them up again.


After an hour, the potatoes were nice and crisp. The skin smelled very nice!

You can see the fork incisions

When the potatoes have cooled down, i cut them into half lengthwise and scoop up the pulp into a bowl. Then i mixed in the cheese, butter, milk and bacon. After that, i spoon the mixture back into the potato skins and baked them for another 15 minutes.


The end results were delicious. I loved it, especially the potato skin!
