Potato toppings in jacket | Best Baked Potato Topping Ideas

I know a genius who keeps a backup potato (a BACKet potato if you will) in his fridge at all times in case of a food emergency. It’s true – a baked potato is balm for all kinds of crises, from breakups and job losses to burnout and pandemic anxiety. A reassuring carby hug, the Perfect Jacket Potato has a comforting aroma and a soothing chewy middle. Better yet, it’s the perfect vehicle for a scrumptious garnish!

I recommend rubbing olive oil and salt on your potatoes before baking to get an extra crispy, salty skin (here’s a recipe for baked potatoes with the deets and an A-Z guide to all different ways to make jacket potatoes).

A generous dollop of beans with cheddar cheese is my favorite jacket potato topping, but sometimes a girl likes to branch out a little. Here are some great ideas to inspire you the next time you make a baked potato:

Taco Baked Potatoes

Open up your chewy potato and pile it with guacamole, sour cream, jalapeños and shredded cheddar cheese. Finally, bite into a small handful of tortilla chips and sprinkle with spicy fajita seasoning for a taco-inspired vegetarian lunch.

Burger Baked Potatoes

Top your potato with a mixture of ground beef sautéed with onions before piling on iceberg lettuce, fresh red onions, toasted sesame seeds and cheese. Finish with a drizzle of homemade burger sauce (mix mayonnaise, mustard and chopped pickles with a little pickle juice from the pickle jar. The sauce in this homemade Big Mac Burger recipe is also a cracker).

Pastrami Reuben baked potato

Combine grated pastrami, sauerkraut, chopped pickles and Thousand Island dressing. Pile on top of your potato and top with a packet of crushed ready-to-use salty crisps.

Baked Potato Poutine

Traditionally prepared with fries, poutine is a delicious mix of fries, cheese and gravy. Why not be a maverick and replace the fries with a baked potato? The hot salty sauce and the steam from the split jacket make for the gooest of cheeses.

Leeky, twice cooked mushroom jackets

Scoop out the flesh of your potato and reserve the skin. Mash the cooked potato with the leeks and mushrooms sautéed slowly in butter and seasonings before putting them back in the skins, covering them with grated cheddar and grilling for a crispy top.

Roasted chicken and peanut potato

Shred leftover roast chicken and toss with peanut butter, soy, and sweet chili for a chicken satay-style coated potato.

Vibrant Tuna Mayo Jackets

Enhance a basic tuna mayonnaise topping by adding finely chopped celery, grated carrot, red onion and cracked black pepper. Vegetables add delicious crunch, color and flavor.

Spicy Gochujang Potatoes

Fry ground chicken, pork or beef until golden brown before adding a touch of soy and a dollop of gochujang. Pile this spicy mixture into your potato and sprinkle with spring onions and thinly sliced ​​red cabbage.

Labneh and sweet potatoes with honey

Top sweet potatoes with thick labneh, chili flakes, lemon zest and flaked salt before drizzling with honey.

Katsu Chicken Potatoes

Make your own katsu sauce by mixing a mixture of sautéed onions and carrots, curry powder, soybeans, honey, rice vinegar and chicken broth. Split and take the flesh of your potato, mix it with the katsu sauce and put it back in the skin of the potatoes. Top with panko-coated chicken breast slices before drizzling with more sauce and a touch of crispy chili oil.

curry potatoes

Leftover curry is the deal when served in a chewy jacket potato. Shred it with a fork and coat it with a refreshing sauce made from Greek yogurt, finely chopped mint and grated cucumber.
