Happy Tuna Salad meets Jacket Potatoes

I heart jacket potatoes, I don't know why we don't make them more often. The other day I decided to combine the chickpea based Happy Tuna Salad with jacket potatoes and it rocked. I then added some cheddar cheezly to the top. My only complaint was that it was quite dry and so next time I might add some tofutti cream cheese or sour cream.

We had some of the potato/happy tuna salad filling leftover so I decided to fry them into patties which worked really well, I didn't even have to add oil.

What are you fav jacket potato combinations?


  1. We love putting sauteed veggies, guacamole and vegan sour cream on jacket potatoes but we don't make them nearly often enough either.

  2. When I was omni and living in London, my favourite jacket potato filling was tuna/mayo and cheese. Last week I made Cindy's anchovy dip and used it as a baked potato filling and it was AWESOME. Hits all the right notes. Sometimes I do a tempeh tuna salad, but mostly with baked potatos I'm lazy and just eat it with beans on top, maybe some tofutti or vegan cheese with it. Man I love jacket potatoes.
