Preheat oven to 220°C / 425°C / Gas Mark 7.
Prick potatoes with a fork and place directly onto the oven shelf and bake for 60-80 minutes. A metal skewer inserted lengthways into each potato will speed up the cooking.
For extra crunchy skins, rub oil over the skin and add a dusting of crushed rock salt or cooking salt.
Use ‘sin-free’ sausages bought from a reputable butcher with low fat and low salt. Grill for about 15 minutes until cooked through.
Serve with baked beans and a little sprinkling of extra mature cheddar cheese.
Cook your potatoes in the microwave first – it will speed up cooking time!
