They are stuffed with all kinds of tasty things.  I loved the Cheese and Jalapeno Mini Loaded Potato Skins, they were really tasty, not too hot and went brilliantly with sausages.  These little stuffed potatoes would also make a nice canape at a party, and would be ideal at a barbeque.

Firstly the potatoes smelt nicely roasted - for 8 or so mins in the microwave this was pretty good, and when I squeezed the cross they opened easily and were very soft.  Previous microwave potatoes have been pretty hard so they have this part sorted!
