    kool :) .... yep they are really good and filling :) ... i usually have a jacket potato when i eat out rather then chips ... although they can be quite big and i usually make them around 6 - 8 pp ! :)

    yep it was nice .... first time i've had meatballs so wasn't sure if i'd like them but they are edible enough for something quick and easy that i can just ping in the microwave, lol.

    hehe nope, copy away :D

    Ok thanks for that do you have any other good meal ideas with jacket potatos?

    I plan one day to have prawns and seafood sauce, another day tuna and Mayo, another day cod and crab sticks and Mayo, another with bakebeans and scrambled egg.

    See my ideas are so boring lol

    i like to have mine with a tin of WW tuna in thousand island dressing (2pp) and salad with a drizzle of tesco light choices balsamic dressing (0pp).... could also use the ww tuna/mayo/sweetcorn or ww tuna coronation ... although i personally don't like the ww tuna coronation!

    also i have:
    birds eye chargrilled chicken (4pp) or southern fried chicken (6pp) (or just plain chicken breast) and peas (2pp) or salad and then pp some light salad cream or ketchup.

    you could also have it with mince or chilli. :) .... i have brought a tin of tesco value minced beef ... don't know what its like and i can't remember how many pp it was but thought it would be great to keep in the cupboard if needed for a quick meal :)

    Hmmm they sound really nice I shouldn't have looked at this before going to work I'm hungry now lol.

    I've just checked the weight of my jacket potato and it's 175g un cooked so is that 3 or 4 pps?

    lol i had a jacket potato for my lunch today with 1/2 a tin of Tesco Value mince and onions (4pp, whole tin is 7pp) and salad.

    the mince was ok but very liquidy and not a lot of flavour ...... i didn't have time to tweak it though to add flavour..... but it was ok and quick and easy :)

    Thank you thought it might be. Well turns out my packet was wrong because my jacket potato was 6pps because the weight was 287g so I rounded it upto 300g x x
