  • 6 large Sebago potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup spreadable cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sour cream

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pat potatoes dry with paper towel. Pierce all over with a fork. Place on prepared tray. Drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

    Roast for 1 hour 15 minutes or until golden and tender. Stand potatoes for 5 to 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

Swap canned salmon for flaked hot-smoked salmon or smoked trout.

Prick potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 6 minutes. Transfer to a baking tray. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden and tender. Sebagos are the best choice for jacket potatoes. You could also use pontiac, kestrel, desiree or, for something unique, try royal blue.
