5 Minute Jacket Potato Fan

Published Tuesday, 12 June, 2012 by Busymum

5 minute jacket potato with a twist (i mean with a fan!)



  • 1 large potato
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika
  • mixed herbs
  • butter (optional)
  • chilli flakes (optional)
  • squirt of lemon juice (optional)
  • tomato puree (toothpaste tube type - optional)


1) wash the potato, leave skin on

2) use a knife to make cuts into the potatoes nearly all the way down, but not to the bottom, still want a whole potato (not potato discs!)

3) place in microwave on potato setting for 3-4 minutes

4) take out hot potato

5) open up the potato slightly so it fans out

6) sprinkle all dried ingredients

7) drizzle olive oil, smear butter, tomato puree and lemon juice

8) stick back into microwave for 30 seconds

9) done - enjoy with a chilled can of coke!

    The mixed herbs intended to be used should be specified. Also the method could have been explained a bit elaborately.
