  1. Start by baking a potato: Prick with a fork and either cook in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour or in the microwave for 5-10 minutes each side.
  2. The filling takes about 10 minutes to make so if you’re baking you can wait a bit but if you’re using the microwave start right away.
  3. Slice up the mushrooms, roughly dice the pepper and peel and dice the onion.
  4. Place the mushrooms and onions into a pan and cook until onions are golden.
  5. Add in peppers and cook for 1-2 minutes more
  6. Season well to taste – salt, pepper, mixed herbs, etc. as you wish
  7. Pour in the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes before serving on top of the cut open jacket potato.
