If you are cooking for 4 people, you may as well double the quantity. The extras can be used for a healthy lunch or part of another healthy family meal.

oven roasted vegetables at the same time.

Ingredients for Crispy Jacket Potato Recipe

  • 8 Medium Potatoes with skin on
  • 2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves crushed - optional


Pre heat your oven to 175c

Wash and dry the potatoes

Set to one side

Using a large bowl, add the olive oil

Crush the garlic into the oil and stir to mix thoroughly

With clean hands, roll each potato in the oil to coat all over

Place each potato on a large baking tray

When all potatoes have been placed on the baking tray, put the tray in the centre of the oven.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes before turning over with a slotted spoon.

Continue to bake until the potato skins have puffed slightly and crispy.

How to test that the potatoes are ready.
