Colin Fassnidge’s Boozy Baked Potatoes Recipe Is One You’ll Want to Save for Entertaining

It’s been a minute since we shared a nifty baked potato recipe. But you can simply never have too many baked potato recipes, especially when they come from the likes of Colin Fassnidge.

In a recent TikTok video, the well-loved chef shared a low-effort take on oven-baked potatoes that uses wine, vinegar and pancetta to infuse your taters with loads of rich flavour.

Here’s how you can make it for yourself at home.

Wine and vinegar baked potato recipe

As Fassnidge tends to do, the details of this recipe are rather loose, so add in your ingredients as you go, to the degree you feel comfortable with.

What you’ll need:

  • Potatoes
  • Chicken salt
  • Pancetta
  • Butter
  • White wine
  • Thyme
  • Bay leaves
  • Marjoram
  • White vinegar


  1. In this video, Fassnidge has pre-prepared an oven tray with full, unpeeled potatoes. Chunks of pancetta have been cut up and tossed with the potatoes. The tray has been “heavily salted”, topped with chicken salt, and coated with thyme, bay leaves and marjoram.
  2. He then throws in a knob of butter and pours a generous amount of wine and vinegar over the top.
  3. From here, Fassnidge covers the tray with foil and pops it into the oven to bake.
  4. Once your potatoes have been baked, Fassnidge shares you can also add chicken on top to bake with your wine and vinegar potatoes.
