Best Jacket Spuds Ever!


  • 1 Potato (Maris Piper or King Edward are the best for jacket spuds)


  1. Make a deep cross in the top of the potato so the steam can escape.
  2. Wrap the potato tightly in 2 sheets of foil, making sure it is well covered so no areas of the potato are exposed to the fire or coals whilst it is cooking.
  3. Place the potato directly onto the hot coals of a barbecue or on the edge of the hot campfire.
  4. Cook for 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on the size of the potato. Remember to keep turning the potato often with a stick or long handled tongs, so that the potato cooks all the way through.
  5. Unwrap the potato and insert a fork to see if the inside is soft and fluffy.
  6. Rest the potato for 5 to 10 minutes. Don't want to burn the top of your mouth off!!
  7. Add your filling and enjoy!
