I am looking for some great "cheat" recipes. They are the kind that only take a few ingredients and you often just need a soup packet or dip packet (etc) with as a vital ingredient. It's the kind of recipe that takes only a small amount of time, but everybody raves about it.
Here is one:
Stag Chilli Jacket Potato
Microwave a large potato for about 4 mins on high. Make sure you poke some holes in it. Check to see if the potato is coooked. Then throw the potato in a moderately hot oven for about 10 mins to make it all crispy.
While that's happening, get a can of stag chilli and microwave it in a dish for about 60-90 seconds.
When potato is done, remove it and cut it in the middle like a cross. Use butter, parmeson cheese and then add the stag chilli with sour cream on top. Use cheese on top of that if you like. Then - you're done!
