Very yummy. I added some chopped chorizo to them and that was very nice.

I added some chopped spring onion to mine. What a delicious recipe.

I really enjoyed this one, am making it again tonight in fact! I didn't use the egg when I made mine and I baked my potatoes in the oven so the skins were nice and crispy. Don't think I'll boil my broccoli this time, will roast it instead for 5-10 minutes and going to use blue cheese instead of cheddar - I'm looking forward to it already.

Easy and very yummy

Made this last night. I didn't microwave it, or use the egg, used a few tbsp of sour cream when mashing the potato instead. Also forgot to put the mustard in - just realised as I was putting them back in the oven. Served it with bbq beans instead of the salsa. Really nice and the OH gave it the thumbs up too.

I made mine without the salsa but part of a main meal with veg and gravy. Me and my Mum really enjoyed it :)

Easy to make and a nice snack

This is ok, not the best flavour combination as we weren't keen on the mustard but the method is good and it was easy, so fine for a mid week family meal.

These were delicious, I didn't think it was possible to make Jacket Spuds healthy and even more filling! Served with a few spoonfulls of beans on top as it can be quite dry without.

What a scrummy dish - it will become a favourite with us!

Because you microwave the potatoes cutting out the middles just causes colapse. I have to wedge then in a loaf tin just to keep some shape! A silly recipe which was ok once cooked

plums1's picture

Not silly at all. You're just doing it wrong. I thought this recipe was great.

Really tasty and quick, works mixing in diced carrot as well.

Was tasty and will make again. Very easy. Wouldn't say it was amazing but good for cold weather and healthy.

Great prepare ahead recipe. Did this for New years day lunch. Great flavour.

Enjoyed this recipe however i under cooked the broccoli slightly so it was a little too crunchy. I also baked my potatoes in the oven for 1 1/2 hours (instead of using the microwave) as i find the skin goes crispier and tends to hold its shape a bit better. Next time i'll serve it with the tomato relish to give it more flavour.

Some people said the mustard was overpowering and it was a bit dry. I am doing this for a healthy lunch in yr8 any ideas for what I could do to stop it being do dry

Hi there, thanks for your question, why not add a few tablespoons of mayonnaise to the mixture and use half the amount of mustard instead? Hope this helps.
