3. Cheesy Bacon Stuff Jacket Potatoes

 A wholesome comfort dish oozing with a delicious cheese and herb filling.

Bake your potatoes in the oven at 220 degrees for 1 hour, turning half way through to cook evenly. Once done, remove from the oven and carefully cut the potatoes in half. Scoop out most of the inner potato and put into a mixing bowl. Be careful to keep the skins intact!

In your mixing bowl, add grated cheddar cheese and our Blue Cheese Sauce to your mashed potato. Pop back in the oven for a further 15 minutes and sprinkle with some chopped parsley - enjoy!

Why not use our Blue Cheese Sauce as a dip too? There's no need to feel any guilt from cheese overload as our Blue Cheese Sauce is fat free, low sugar, low calorie and vegan!

4. Pizza Pittas

These pitta pizzas are so easy to make and make the perfect serving size if you're cooking for one!

Simply pop your pitta bread in a toaster for around 1 minute just until it's ever so slightly toasted, spread tomato puree and our Fakeaway Pizza Sauce as a base and top with basil, chopped tomatoes and grated cheese.

Place your pitta bread on a tray and grill in the oven for around a minute, just until the cheese has melted and serve!

5. Hasselback Roast Potatoes

These potatoes are super easy to make and taste amazing!

This recipe on how to make Hassel back roast potatoes features one of our favourite seasonings, Chips and Wedges.


1. Cut slits into the potatoes so that the bottom remains intact. For a quick hack to make this easier, rest the potato on 2 skewers or bits of dowel to prevent you from slicing the whole way through.

 2. Add these to a baking tray, spray with our Low-Calorie Sunflower Cooking Spray and sprinkle over our Chips and Wedges seasoning. Our chips and wedges seasoning are super tasty and works perfectly with the potatoes, giving it some amazing flavour! A mixture of herbs and smoked spices, it’s a must have for your cupboard and will soon become your family’s favourite!

3. Bake for 40 minutes at 200 degrees, give them a turn and cook for a further 20 minutes. This will give the potatoes a gorgeous crisp on the outside but keep the inside super fluffy.

We’ve added a parsley garnish before serving these for an extra fancy touch!
