Jacket Potato with Cheese and Beans


Jacket Potato with Cheese and Beans

There’s nothing quite as hearty and warming as a jacket potato, oozing with delicious Baked Beans and cheese. Here’s a tasty, versatile and nutritious classic, perfect with Branston Baked Beans.

Serves: 4

3 baking potato, washed
100 grams of British Mild Cheddar, grated
Salt and black pepper, to taste

And don't forget the special ingredient...
2x 410g tins of Branston Baked Beans

Step 1

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 7. Season the potatoes, then bake for 1 hour or until a knife slides in easily.

Step 2

After cooking, let your potatoes rest for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Heat the beans in a pan.

Step 4

Pierce the top of the potatoes with a knife, and then gently open the tops. Pour over beans and grated cheese.

Step 5

Serve with a simple side salad.

Try giving it a twist:

- Leave off the foil and instead rub the outside of the potato with a little olive oil and salt before baking. You’ll get a nice crispy finish.

- Let the kids decide. Put a load of toppings on the table and let them create their own baked potato experience. This’ll make it fun and help them learn about tastes and cooking.

- Try some different cheeses. Emmental and Gouda go really nicely with both the beans and the potato. You could even try a little grated Parmesan for an Italian twist.

- Spice it up! A little splash of Tabasco sauce is just the ticket if you like things hot.
