Baked potatoes are one of the best meals in winter. They’re so easy to do, they just require some pre-thought to leave enough time to bake them. And the results are so satisfying and comforting. They’re the perfect base as they are super neutral so will taste great with a huge variety of toppings. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
Baked Beans and Cheese
This is a classic comfort meal but is such a good choice. It’s also so easy to do – just open a tin of beans and heat them then pour over the baked potato and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Despite coming from a tin, baked beans are still an excellent source of veg and protein, so this is a well-rounded and tasty meal choice.
Tuna and Sweetcorn
The salty tuna paired with the fresh sweet corn is a match made in heaven. This works best when mixed with mayonnaise to bind it and add some indulgent creaminess. This perfect balance of flavors is delicious when piled on top of a crispy baked potato.
Black Bean Chili and Avocado
This requires more effort than the above two but is well worth it. It’s perfect if you have leftover chili. If your chili is vegan, then this is an ideal choice for a balanced and delicious plant-based meal.
