Jacket Potato with Garlic Mushrooms

A wonderfully indulgent recipe for the cold winter nights!


  • 2 large Jacket Potatoes
  • 200g Mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 Onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (crushed)
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Double cream/ crème fraîche
  • 2 tbsp Red wine
  • Oil for frying
  • Black pepper
  • Salt to taste


  1. Scrub, wash and pat dry the potatoes.
  2.  Rub a little oil and salt on the potato skins to make them extra crispy.
  3. Place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200 degree C for an hour.
  4. While those are cooking, add 1 tsp of the oil into a large skillet set over medium heat and then add butter.
  5. Once the butter has melted toss in the onions.  Cook until the onions turn soft which should take a couple of minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and mushrooms, cook for 5-7 minutes until they are tender or have released their water.
  7. Mix in the crème fraîche, pepper, salt to taste and chopped parsley and cook for another minute.
  8. Slit open the jacket potatoes and season inside of the potatoes with a little salt, and then spoon on the mushroom mixture.  Garnish with some parsley and serve.
