Jacket Potato with Sour Cream & Chive Mousse

jacket potato with a chive mousse

Steaming and savoury, jacket potato is the ultimate comfort food for any occasion. Despite its simplicity in terms of spices and content, its crispy, golden exterior contrasted by a fluffy interior is simply divine. Accompanied by a rich sour cream and chive mousse with an airy texture, the two are unrivalled partners in crime.  


    • 4 large potatoes
    • 20 g chives, finely chopped + extra for garnishing
    • 250 ml sour cream
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
    • Salt and pepper to taste


To ensure a smooth cooking experience, please read the Smartwhip care and safety guidelines before usage.

    1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Prick the potatoes using a fork, rub the olive oil, salt and pepper onto the potatoes until they are fully coated, and place them on a lined oven tray.
    2. Bake the potatoes for approximately 1 hour, checking regularly. Depending on the size of the individual potatoes, they may need 10-20 minutes longer. You should be able to pierce them easily once they are ready.
    3. In the meantime, whisk the chives and sour cream together in a mixing bowl and add salt and pepper to your taste. Make sure to leave a few chives for garnishing.
    4. Using a handheld mixer, blend the chive and sour cream mixture until you achieve a smooth consistency with a light green tint.
    5. Pour the mixture into a cream dispenser, connect your Smartwhip, and charge it to 15 bar. Shake the cream dispenser 3-5 times to evenly distribute the gas, then set it aside for 15 minutes.
    6. When the indicated time has passed, shake the cream dispenser a few more times and then release the mixture into a serving bowl.


Slice the steaming potatoes down the middle – approximately 2⁄3 through – and gently prise the potato open. Lightly season the interior with salt and pepper, and spoon a generous dollop of the sour cream mousse on top. Garnish the jacket potato with a few sliced chives, and it’s ready to be served!
