gluten and dairy free baked potatoes

Allergy Friendly Baked Potatoes

An easy recipe for allergy friendly baked potatoes or jacket potatoes as they are called in England. This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. Serve it as a side or make it a full meal.

My kids love these potatoes and my son for some reason calls them potato puppies. It is quite a simple recipe you bake the potatoes and then scoop them out, mash them, add seasoning and veggies then put them back into the potato skin to serve, yum!

Type of Potato

In this recipe, I used russet potato because it is the best for baking due to its fluffy texture and mild flavor. The flesh is very dry, and the skin is thick, so you can bake it up crisp on the outside and the inside turns soft and fluffy, which perfectly soaks up the oil and dairy free milk. However, you can use any kind of potato you like.

Making Your Baked Potatoes Allergy-Friendly and Delicious

Butter: Try substituting traditional butter with olive oil or dairy-free margarine for a creamy finish.

Milk: I also used a little milk to mash the potatoes. Use dairy free milk that you like.

Corn: This recipe does contain sweet corn but you can leave it out or substitute it with any favorite veggies such as peas etc.

Serving Allergy Friendly Baked Potatoes

I have shown how to serve it in two ways as you will see in the pictures, one is with dairy free cheese the other is without, just in case you cannot find the cheese or cannot use it.

Both ways it is delicious!

Different Topping Ideas for Allergy Friendly Baked Potatoes

With a bit of creativity and exploration, you can transform your baked potatoes into a gourmet delight, here are some topping variations that you can try:

  • Vegetables: avocado slices, roasted vegetables, salsa
  • Meats: chicken, ground beef, plant-based meats
  • Dressings: plant-based mayonnaise, balsamic glaze, tangy barbecue sauce, lemon herb dressing, or a zesty chimichurri sauce for a burst of flavor.
  • Toppings: chives, or a savory herb blend.
