Baked spuds, miso butter , maple bacon, sour cream & herbs

I just had to write that title out that long..


Because I have to say that this supper was one of my favourite foods I think I have had the the pleasure in enjoying eating in a good while.. And I think you would agree that we eat pretty darn well!

It’s a simple thing the baked potato..

Yet when spritzed and sprinkled with Cornish sea salt , and baked in a medium hot oven till crisp on the outside and cloud like on the inner it’s a joy.. Not Mickey waved , chef ping has no role to play here ..


These are my favourite and what ultimately makes the humble spud great..

Miso butter..

Couldn’t find where I have put he miso paste.. The nice white one.. So used and itsu miso soup base instead.. Whooped into unsalted French butter.. it’s a winner!!!

Sour cream with dill and chives..

Sourcream mixed with fresh chopped dill and chives.. A scraping of black pepper and that’s it..

Streaky bacon.. Cooked till not quite super crisp.. It’s a nice thick oak smoked one .. smothered in maple syrup. .. Yeah oh yeah..

All into the spud.. Miso butter first it’s great.. Cooling Sourcream just firming up a little with the heat of the spud..

Bacon crowning the top..


Seriously .. Beautiful..

  2. Holy Sweet Baby Jemima – thanks Sue!!! Almost as brilliant as your miso butter and these spuds. I like how you’ve skewered them. Do you fry or bake the bacon? They are beautifully flat…
