A favourite lunch time dish for me and the family, everyone gets to choose their topping and the kids always enjoy filling their own.

Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 4 Potatoes)

  • 4 Potatoes (Maris Piper, King Edward, Estima, Desiree)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 20 grams Course Sea Salt
  • Drizzle Olive Oil
  • 200g Tined Tuna
  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper, to serve
  • 1 handful Parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Pre heat oven to 220 degrees
  2. Thoroughly wash and dry potatoes and randomly prick them with a fork
  3. Pat dry, rub with olive oil then roll in sea salt.
  4. Cook in the oven on a grill shelf for about an hour or until just tender, the outside should be crisp – if not give them an extra 10 minutes.
  5. Break open when ready to eat and serve with a knob of butter and a filling of your choice!
  6. For the tuna filling, combine parsley, tuna and mayonnaise mix in a bowl and serve with cracked black pepper on top.

Notes... This recipe is great served with a big green salad! Other great toppings include, beans, crispy bacon, cheese and sometimes for dinner chilli con carne!
