Rich and exotic, the Fried Jacket Potatoes with Cream Cheese Topping will amaze your guests and spread your fame as a great cook!

The best part is that the dish is not as difficult to prepare although the outcome is so fabulous. Parboiled potatoes are deep-fried and their scooped-out centres are packed with a mouth-watering mixture of cream cheese and veggies seasoned with herbs and spices.

The capsicum, carrots and spring onions add a splash of colours to this dish, giving it a very appealing look that will make everyone taste a piece. Make sure you do not overcook the potatoes as that will make it difficult to fry and scoop out.

Crispy potatoes and filled with a creamy topping what more can one ask for for a starter. I made this when I had guests coming over and they loved it a lot and also asked the recipe for the same.
