Melted cheese and baked beans is a UK favourite when it comes to baked potatoes – and we have the perfect recipe and cooking instructions!
- 1 large potato
- 1 cup baked beans
- ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated (vegan cheese for vegans)
Microwave the large potato for nine minutes. A medium potato needs seven minutes and a small potato needs five minutes. To add extra potatoes allow an extra four minutes for a large potato, three minutes for a medium potato and two minutes for a small potato. This is using a 1000w microwave – adjust for slightly longer or shorter if yours is a higher or lower power. Don't forget to pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times.
Heat up the beans.
When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
Add optional butter, salt and pepper to the potato.
Pour the hot beans over the potato.
Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese on top.
