The alternative method. 4 mins in microwave, then oil and salt skins and grill for 4 mins turning frequently to crisp is an excellent, fast method of producing mini jackets. Perfect inside, perfect outside, and max 10 mins to produce.

Agree with other comments - massive hit at my party, everyone loved them. Very easy to do, don't skimp on the sea salt as I think that was what gave them so much flavour. Great idea!

Very nice idea to include along with other nibbles! Everyone loved them, although I have to say they didn't look anywhere near as neat as those in the photograph! I added cheese and chives to the sour cream to give a bit more flavour.

So simple but so delicious. A massive hit at my last party and I used sour cream dip. I'm making again for the Jubilee party.

I have a party for 100 people. Could I prep the potatoes the day before?
