Best Portion Sizes For Fillings for Jacket Potatoes


First of all, well done on your site David.

Anyway, quick question. I am hoping to start selling jacket spuds soon, but I know different serving spoons are used for different toppings; therefore is there anyone out there who could help me with portion sizes for beans, cheese, coleslaw, tuna, sweeetcorn, chilli, curry etc please?

Thanks in advance

Jacket Potato filling portions
by: Kevin Cradje

We started last year and all went very well. To judge the portion size, whilst at home we packed a jacket as we would when out and then added a filing portion which we thought was generous, then noted how we arrived at this portion, i.e. spoon/ladel size.

We have 2 charges, filled or not filled working on the idea there is only so much you can get in the container anyway and if someone has 3 filings they do not get 3x as much.

Plus as one filing costs more than all others if they have 4 filings say, they only get 1/4 of the expensive one.

Use Your Best Judgement For Food Portions
by: Anonymous

To be honest to you, the best thing to do is to give what you think is a fair or generous portion of food. Don’t forget to take in to account the size of your jacket potato, and what your running cost are. Use you best judgement and you will be just fine. If you can give people generous portions of food this has always worked well for me in the past, and brings cutomers back for more.

Best of luck
