  • 1 handful cheddar

  • 1 slice bacon

  • 1 tbsp pesto

  • 1 tbsp butter (optional)

  • 1 baking potato


  1. Pierce the potato about eight times with a fork.
  2. Bung in the microwave for around 10 minutes. While the microwave is working its magic grate some cheddar.
  3. Grill, or shallow fry in olive oil, the bacon then chop.
  4. Once the potato has cooked, cut it open and add a knob of butter if wanted.
  5. Mix in the pesto.
  6. Sprinkle the bacon over the potato mix and add some grated cheese.

Handy Hint

This is so simple, quick and easy and I do this when I am on a time limit or have been caught short!

    Would be good cooled, clingfilmed and bunged in a lunchbox too.
