Try some quark in the mash, and maybe some chives too. I made mash with a little quark the other day and it was creamy and tasty.

Quark, philly, mayo, butter depends on if you want to use syns or not

Hex A of strong grated cheese and some frylighted chopped onions and then pop the skins under the grill to crisp up a little. Nom!!!
Also, I know Asda do some baking potatoes that have a really lovely fluffy buttery taste to the potato so you don't actually need butter, and they are lovely!!!

I'd definitely add some fried lean bacon, fried onion, some HeX A cheese, and maybe syn a little bit of philly (or Quark, if I want my syns for something else). NOM!

Why miss them? Do a green day and use the nice baked potatoes that dont need butter (I think the Asda ones are called Mirabelle?)

You can have 2 hex A of strong cheese on a green day, should you wish to, or get the low low cheese if you want more cheese than the usual Hex amount!!!

Dont deprive, thrive!! :D (I just made that up, I think its suitably cheese-y!)

Pete’s Potato Skins

Serves 4

4 Baking Potatoes
112g Low Fat Cheddar Cheese (from your daily allowance) = 28g per person
Cajun mix
Philadelphia Low Fat chives & herb Cheese Spread
Toppings of your choice


Wash potatoes and dry, with a fork scrap the sides and prick them.
In (600w) Microwave cook for 10-15 mins, until soft, remove, Put on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes at 180c, remove and remove and cut into half. Allow to cool slightly, scoop out most of the cooked potato, leaving a shell of potato and skin about 6-8 mm thick, place the removed potato into a bowl, mix with the cheddar cheese.
Season with salt & pepper. Add any other toppings that you like.
And return for a further 10 mins until crisp and golden.

For a dip, try, Philadelphia chives & herb cheese spread.


Phily black pepper and spring onion light soft cheese. With bacon and grated cheese over the top. Its filling and a healthly way to use syns etc.
