Tuna Baked Jacket Potato

This is a super simple recipe that anyone can throw together. If you don’t have time to wait for the potato to bake in the oven, use your microwave. The recipe can easily be doubled. If you don’t finish your potato, refrigerate it for another day.

Serves: 1
Time: 1 hour 15 minutes


    • one potato, scrubbed
    • sour cream or yoghurt
    • 1/2 95g canned tuna
    • 1/4 cup grated cheese (of your choice)
    • 1–2 tablespoons finely chopped vegetables of your choice (sweetcorn, capsicum, spring onions, carrots)



Preheat your oven to 200ºC.

Pierce potato with a fork a few times and bake in the oven for 45–60 minutes.

You can also use the microwave to cook the potato. Cook on high for 3 minutes, then check with a skewer. Your microwave may also have a ‘potato’ option.

Once your potato is cooked through, cut in half lengthways and scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/2cm thickness. It will be hot, so be careful.

Place flesh in a bowl and mash with the sour cream or yoghurt. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix together.

Put mixture back into the potato and cook in the oven for another 10 minutes.
