tuna pizza jacket potatoes method
While the potatoes bake, in a medium frying pan on a medium heat, add the chopped red onion and olive oil. Fry, stirring occasionally until soft and just turning colour. Add the crushed garlic, oregano, tomatoes and juices for the can of tuna. Cook stirring occasionally till the tomatoes start to collapse and the liquid has almost totally reduced. Stir in the Safcol tuna and olives if you use them. Season generously with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.
Preheat a grill to medium high.
Cut each hot baked potato in half. Place on a grill tray. Divide the Tuna and tomato mixture into 8 and spoon on top of each potato. Top with a mixture of grated tasty and mozzarella cheeses. Grill for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden and the topping is bubbling hot.
Tip: If you like a richer taste, you can mash a little extra grated cheese and butter into the potatoes before topping with the tuna mixture and the cheeses
Serve hot with a fresh salad.
Serves 4. Preparation time 10 minutes. Cooking time 5 minutes excluding the time it takes to bake the potato.
