Simple jacket potato with tuna
A delicious meal for lunch or dinner

This savoury delight is best served hot out of the oven to really appreciate the new flavour bursting out of an old recipe. This quick and easy meal provides a fresh take on the delicious jacket potato by adding in tuna and replacing the sour cream with yoghurt for a healthier option.
