Baked potatoes... with everything

Baked potatoes can make a speedy yet nutritious supper - as long as you have a microwave.
(If you don't have a microwave, boil the potatoes in their jackets. Once they are soft, grill all over to crisp the skins before splitting and topping.)

Prick the potatoes all over and microwave until they are soft.
Meanwhile, assemble toppings of your choice, which could include any of the following:
Baked beans and grated cheese
Broccoli (or any other veg.) in a low fat cheese sauce
Low fat or fat free cottage cheese with lots of black pepper
Leftover bolognaise sauce
Chickpeas and butternut with some added curry paste
Spinach and crumbled feta.

Once the potatoes are cooked, split them open and place on an ovenproof dish
Spoon over the prepared topping and grill briefly to brown.
Serve with a big green salad.

Real comfort food. What's your favourite topping?
