    Hi all, I'm going to a buffet evening on Tuesday where we're all taking food and the organiser has asked me to choose from a list of food! I chose 'filled' jackets, so basically jacket potatoes halved and oven baked, insides taken out, mixed with yummy things and replaced! I want to be adventurous and not go for just standard cheese and onion! I would like to do a variety of fillings and put little cocktail stick labels in them! Bacon and blue cheese was one idea! Any other ideas would be much appreciated!! Thanks hunnies!XXX

    When I was a student many years ago I used to make shephard's pie jackets - bake potatoes, scoop out middle and mash. Fill with mince simmered with onions, celery and worcstershire sauce then top with the mash and grate a little cheese on top. Very tempted to make them this week now thinking about it.

    LOL! :8855: The ironic thing is I very rarely eat a jacket potato (unless it's smothered with butter and cheese it just ain't worth having in my opinion ;))

    I was a student for 4 years...only ever had a jacket potato about once a year though, lol! xxx

    Thanks for the ideas guys!

    To complete the thread I just thought I'd share with you I have decided on my 3 different fillings:-

    I have 20 potatoes which I will oven bake, cut into 2, spoon out the potato, mix with the fillings and replace into the skins:-

    - Bacon & blue cheese
    - Cheddar & leek
    - Philly & roasted veg (peppers, red onion, courgettes)

    I did want to get the sweet chilli Philly but our nearest Tesco (which isn't a Tesco Extra) didn't have it so I may mix a little sweet chilli sauce in instead!X
