These are the ultimate jacket potatoes. Cheesy, spicy, buttery. Who doesn't like jacket potatoes? Nobody doesn't like them. If they say they do, they are lying.


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and rub them with oil and salt, then bake them until fully cooked with crispy, dark brown skins - roughly an hour to an hour and a half.

Meanwhile, fry the bacon in the butter until crispy then add the chopped jalapenos. Continue to fry for a few minutes then take off the heat.

Slice open the potatoes and scoop out the insides. Mix with the bacon and jalapenos (but set some aside for garnish), the cream cheese, cheddar and salt and pepper. Scoop back into the potato skins and top with a slice of mozzarella, then grill until molten.

Top with a roasted jalapeno, remaining bacon bits and chopped chives.
