Marinated chicken thigh kebabs are priced for only R69.99 per kilogram at Spar this week, while 2kg Freshline potatoes sells for R24.99.

For something different, try this bacon and cheese filled potato recipe. “Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a baked potato crammed with your favourite filling,” Spar promises.

Bacon and Cheese filled Baked Potato


  • 4 well shaped medium-sized potatoes
  • Butter
  • ½ cup (125 ml) Double Cream Plain Yoghurt
  • 1 tub (150g) Low Fat Cream Cheese
  • 8 – 10 rashers Lean Bacon, cooked until crispy and chopped
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese


  1. Wash the potatoes and cut a small cross in the centre. Rub the skins with butter and then wrap in foil, making sure the shiny side faces inwards.
  2. To oven bake: bake at 180°C for about 30 – 45 minutes or until potatoes are soft to the touch. To microwave: prick the skins all over with a fork. Line the glass platter of the microwave oven with paper towelling and arrange the potatoes in a circle on top. Microwave for 5 – 6 minutes on 100 percent power. Turn the potatoes and microwave for another 5 – 6 minutes on 100 percent power.
  3. Cut a cross in each potato and press the potato at the bottom to open it up slightly.
  4. Combine the yoghurt and cream cheese and mix until smooth, and then add any of the suggested ingredients. Top with cheddar cheese.
