Baked Potato and Beans



  • 1 large potato
  • 1/4 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

For toppings:

  • 1/2 tin of beans


1. Prick the potato with a fork.

2. Mix the oil and salt and pepper.

3. Rub the potato with the seasoned oil.



1. Place potato on microwave-safe plate and microwave for 7 minutes, turning over halfway through cooking.

2. If your potato isn’t fork tender after 7 minutes, continue microwaving in 1 minute increments.

3. Let rest for 2 minutes.

Air fry

1. Put the potato in the air fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 200°C and cook for 40-50 minutes, or until a sharp knife goes through the potato easily.

2. Check the potato after 20 minutes – if it seem to be browning too quickly on one side, turn it over using tongs, then check again after another 20 minutes to ensure it’s cooked through.

Slow Cooker

1. Put the potato into the slow cooker, put on the lid. Cook on high for 4 ½ to 5 hrs or cook on low for 7 ½ to 8 hrs.

Oven Cook
1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7.

2. Put potato on the top shelf of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, then turn down the oven to 190°C/170°C fan/ gas 5 and bake for an additional 45-60 minutes until the skin is crisp and the inside soft.
