Baked these potatoes for a bonfire party. Followed the method exactly and was told by various guests that these were the best jacket potatoes they had ever had. Delious!

It's much faster if you microwave the spud first and then rub it with oil - you only need 20 mins in the oven then :)

I love mine with cottage cheese and coleslaw
