Mushroom & Pepper Stuffed Potatoes

I have to admit, stuffed baked potatoes of alllll kinds are my new favourite obsession. I love how easy they are to batch cook and freeze. I take one out of the freezer in the morning and pop it into the oven at lunch time. Teamed with a simple salad and a light dressing of olive oil and honey, it makes a filling and nutritious lunch. 

Why not experiment when it comes to stuffed potatoes? I love tuna and sweetcorn, or onion and mushrooms. Even garlic mushrooms with be an amazing filling. My mum makes chicken and sweetcorn stuffed jackets and SWEARS BY THEM!
