Cook Time: Varies

Fishermans jacketsIngredients:

3 small-medium baking potatoes
20g unsalted butter
50-100ml Growing Up Milk  (ready-made or made up from powder form)
100g hard cheese, grated
130g tin salmon / tuna, drained
2-3 tablespoons beetroot juice, taken from pack of cooked beetroot (not in vinegar)

To decorate: olives (pitted), baby tomatoes, sugar snap peas….or whatever you think!


  1. Bake the potatoes as you wish – either in the oven, the microwave, or cook in the microwave and then crisp up the skins in the oven for a final 15 minutes or so.
  2. Once you’ve baked the potatoes, allow to cool sufficiently enough so you can handle them, then cut away the tops, scoop out the cooked potato into a large bowl, leaving the skins in tact. You’ll need about 350g cooked potato…
  3. Add the butter, cheese and fish (tuna or salmon) to the potato and mash together, with the beetroot juice and enough Growing Up Milk to create a smooth consistency of mash. Taste it so you know you’re happy with it.
  4. Place the mash back in the skins and re-heat if necessary. If not, create a funny face with the veg and olives…. Serve immediately.
