Tomato and Mozzarella Stuffed Jacket Potatoes

Italian-style ingredients for these jacket potatoes which we stuffed with mozzarella, fresh cherry tomatoes and fresh basil leaves, just alike a Margherita Pizza seasoning.

Serves 2, Preparation 10 mins, Cooking approx 1 hr and 30

  • 2-3 tbsp of EVOO – Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 50g mozzarella, fresh or shredded
  • a handful of cherry tomatoes, slightly ripen and halved
  • about 10 basil leaves, chopped
  • salt, a pinch


Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7.

Rub the olive oil over the potatoes and bake for 20 mins.

Turn down the oven to 180C/350 F/Gas 4 for about 50 mins or until it gets a fluffy interior and a crispy skin.

Cut a cross on top of each potato, add Mozzarella, cherry toms and basil, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Put it back in the hot oven for 5 mins, then take it out from the oven and serve.
