3 Tongue Twisting Baked Potato Recipes!

With the weather getting colder as the depths of winter approach you will probably find your appetite increasing, particularly in regards to nice warm hearty food. This is certainly the case for me! One of the most homely, tasty, easy to make yet ultra-healthy foods I enjoy particularly this time of year are baked potatoes. Here are 3 very enjoyably and convenient recipes to enjoy with a jacket potato this winter!

Pork potato skins

Pork is my personal favourite meat; there is nothing which tastes quite like it to me. This is why this following recipe features on a weekly basis in my diet when I am mass gaining. It tastes like a cheat meal yet it contains complete muscle friendly nutrients! Enjoy!

1 large baked potato

Coat the potato with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Cook in the oven for approximately 45 minutes until cooked and the skin is nice and crispy. Once cooked, remove the potato flesh from within the skin using a spoon and place in a mixing bowl. Grate around 50g of low fat cheddar cheese into the mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with the potato. Add some cooked mushrooms and some pine kernels to add flavour and texture. Take the mixture and place it carefully back in the skin, then pop the potato back in the oven for 5 minutes to brown.

200g lean pork medallions

Using cooking scissors chop up the pork into small medals and place in a pan until thoroughly cooked.

1/2 cooking apple

Chop up the apple into thin slices and add to a pan along with a small amount of water and 1 tablespoon of cooking Splenda. Mix with a cooking spoon until the apple sauce is formed.

All you have to do is dish this up and enjoy some absolutely gorgeous potato skins with some tongue teasing crispy pork with some apple sauce! This meal will provide your muscles with the carbohydrates, proteins and fats they require whilst impressing your taste buds simultaneously!

 

Buff beef with crispy potato

After pork, beef is a close second in terms of taste and texture for me. Everyday I have a good dose of beef because it helps keep me feeling full which is key for me with an appetite like a starved crocodile! Here is a beef recipe I use a lot with the beloved baked potato.

1 large baked potato

Coat the skin with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. As above, this gives a beautiful crispy texture with a great savoury taste.

250g extra lean minced beef

Place the beef in a pan and squash it down with a wooden spoon to from a beef ‘omelette’ for want of a better word. Add two sliced mushrooms, ½ sliced red pepper, 1 sliced tomato and 20g flaked almonds. Cook until one side is nicely browned before flipping it to brown the other side.

Serve this meal like a big burger a long with a juicy baked potato. The beef is lovely and crisp which is when the flavours really come out along with all the other ingredients you have added. Again, this is a winning formula in regards to supporting muscle growth AND the desire for tasty food.

 

Exotic chicken with crispy potato

Chicken is a very popular meat among athletes including myself, where I will get through anywhere between 500g to 1kg a day depending on my other meal choices. It is a great meat because it is relatively cheap, goes with a lot of different food and is easy to prepare. However, chicken can be quite bland sometimes but not with this recipe!

1 large baked potato

Coat the skin with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. As above, this gives a beautiful crispy texture with a great savoury taste.

200g chicken thigh

Chicken thigh contains more fat than the breast; however as it is winter we are not going to worry about a little extra fat. It is still a great source of protein and the added benefit with thigh is that it is naturally juicy and much more succulent than breast. Taking the chunks of thigh, place them into a baking tray and cook until the skin is lovely and crisp! Once cooked, you can soak up some of the unwanted fat using kitchen roll.

Vegetable mix

To really add some flavour and another dimension to this meal take ½ yellow pepper, ½ green pepper, ½ red pepper, 1 red onion and 100g of pineapple and toss them into a frying pan with extra virgin olive oil. Whilst you are doing this boil 5 stalks of asparagus. Once all the veg is cooked add a tablespoon of soy sauce and mix it all together in a mixing bowl. This makes for a delicious power house of flavours and healthy nutrients!

Serving this meal makes you rush to the table because it looks GREAT! All the colours from the veg/fruit really do add a new dimension to the dish.

There are 3 very easy to make recipes built around one of the nation’s favourite food, the baked potato. These recipes are perfect for anybody looking to add mass to their frame this winter without eating bland food! ENJOY!
