Potatoes (1 medium one per person), scubbed clean but not peeled
Tin of baked beans (1 tin for 2 people)
Cook your potato(es). In the microwave, simply prod the potato a few times with a sharp knife and pop in a microwave proof bowl or plate, then microwave 8-15 mins, until a knife inserted into the centre shows the potato is soft and cooked all the way through. In the oven, preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7 and prod potato(es) a few times with a knife, then cover in foil, and bake for about 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the centre shows the potato is soft and cooked all the way through.
Slice in half lengthways, and serve topped with beans (heated until piping hot) and a little cheese.
There is no need to go any further with this recipe until you are confident with it and feel up for the next step.
