    You can whip up any or all of these crowd-pleasing numbers really easily – why not bake all the potatoes together and then get a friend or two on each different variation? We love them as a special lunch treat, or even on a lazy Saturday when you can’t be bothered with a complicated dinner.

    In the lineup today, we have refreshing tuna and dill with sweet potato, a very moreish haloumi and Harissa paste number for those who like a bit of fire, and a baked egg number with cheese and chives which would make a delectable brunch option.
