This potato in this recipe can either be done in the oven or the microwave. Of course the microwave, if you have one is cheaper and quicker.
Also you can make your own pesto if you have blender. It simply is fresh basil and pine nuts whizzed into a paste.
However, jacket or baked potatoes can pretty much have any filling from plain butter/marg to yesterdays leftovers. Be creative with what you add. Makes for a wholesome delicious meal that can easily ring the changes.
