Ham filling for Jacket Potatoes


Wow, you certainly had a lot of suggestions for the American party! Keep 'em coming, everything is much appriciated! For now, how about something really simple for dinner? Jacket potatoes. An eternal favorite, really. And it couldn't be easier. Just pop them in the oven, put your feet up and relax for an hour, and then make a simple filling. Ahhh. Sometimes, that's just what you need, isn't it?

Just remember to bake the potatoes really well, because you don't want to encounter any of those hard bits. No, soft through and through is really what you're after here. And while some might think that it's ok to microwave the potatoes.. well, I personally don't, it's just not as tasty.

Ham filling
Serves 2

200 ml crème fraîche, low-fat is fine
120 g smoked ham, in thin strips or diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small red onion, finely diced
100 ml sweetcorn
1 red pepper, finely diced
cayenne pepper, cumin, salt

Just stir everything together, season and enjoy!
