Jacket potatoes cooked to fluffy perfection with spicy tomato, sweetcorn and cheese fillings - this Mexican style Jacket Potato recipe is simple to make and can pack a bit of a kick! 

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 200°C Fan, Gas Mark 7. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place on a plate and microwave on HIGH for 6½ minutes. Turn the potatoes over and microwave for a further 3½ minutes.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet and brush with the oil. Season and bake for  20 minutes until the skin is crisp and the flesh is soft. Reduce the temperature to 200°C, 180°C Fan, Gas Mark 6 if the potato browns too quickly.
  3. Heat a small non-stick pan over a medium to high heat and dry toast the cumin seeds for 30 seconds to 1 minute until fragrant. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.
  4. Mix the Cheddar, sweetcorn, tomatoes and coriander together. Scatter with the lime zest and cumin seeds then mix well to combine.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven. Make a cross in each potato and split open slightly.
  6. Spoon the cheese mixture into each jacket potato and sprinkle with a pinch of chilli powder.

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."

Potato Peel Soup Recipe by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

"There’s nothing humble about this soup’s rich, creamy flavour – it tastes, remarkably, like mushrooms. And if it seems just a little too pared-back, it’s very easy to jazz it up with some nice finishing touches. Make sure the potatoes are well scrubbed before you peel them so the peels are very clean.
