I have a confession when I think of eating jacket potatoes I think of cheese and beans, not very adventurous I know. So when I was offered the opportunity to taste test one of McCain’s recipe ideas for their new McCain Ready Baked Jackets, how could I say no?
Whilst jacket potatoes are good for you at a little over 200kcal per potato I must admit that the cooking of them is usually a little hit or miss. If baked in the oven they take forever, or in the microwave I can never seem to get them soft enough. McCain have come to my rescue have made jacket potatoes not only easy to cook but soft, fluffy and tasty.
The following cooking instructions are for 1 to 4 McCain Ready Baked Jackets. For best results cook from frozen. DO NOT overcook!
Remove from carton and place on a microwavable plate. Place in the centre of the microwave oven. Cook on full power. Allow to stand for 2 minutes before serving. Ensure potato is piping hot throughout before eating.

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 430°F / Gas Mark 7.
For fan assisted ovens that’s 210°C / 425°F.
Place your Ready Baked Jackets onto the baking tray and pop them into the middle of the oven. Bake for 45 – 55 minutes, until they’re lovely and crisp.
What Boo Roo and Tigger Too thought…
I was impressed with the simple and easy to follow cooking instructions. I opted to cook my ready baked jackets in the microwave and I wasn’t disappointed. After a few short minutes they emerged hot, soft and waiting for my filling of choice.
These are something that I will be adding to my shopping list, perfect for a quick and easy yummy meal.
