Jacket Potato Car
There is always heated debate in our household as to how to cook a jacket potato. The boys and I love them when they are cooked uncovered and the skin is tough, brown and delicious. Roy on the other hand prefers a more delicate version with the potato wrapped to cook leaving the skin paler and softer.
The fun food car I made uses the crispier version but you can of course do either!
This is so quick and simple to prepare and was a slam dunk winner with my boys.
– Jacket potatoes
– For detail I used corn, cherry tomatoes, celery, carrot and baby spinach leaves. Feel free to substitute for whatever you have in the fridge.
1. Look for and cook a potato that has a cylindrical type shape.
2. Cut a little triangle that gives you the drivers area and bend the sliced skin back to make the back of the seat.
3. Add 4 chunky tyres. I used carrots but other cylindrical veg would work.
4. I used a piece of celery for an ostentatious exhaust.
5. And one sliced horizontally for a steering wheel.
6. Then I added some corn kernel headlights.
7. Followed by some rear lights cut from a cherry tomato.
8. And the car was ready to hit the celery road.
9. Brum brum into lunch or dinner …..
