Ready to give it a go? Check out the recipe below!


  • Large baking potato(es)
  • Vegan butter
  • Vegan bacon
  • Vegan cheese 
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • Plain unsweetened vegan yoghurt
  • Fresh chives
  • Olive oil


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Prepare the potato by forking some holes all over it, and coat in olive oil and sea salt.
  3. Put your potato in the oven, we find 45-60 minutes to be best, depending on the size of your spud.
  4. Once the potato is baking, you can prepare your sour cream, this is a very simple method.
  5. Take half a cup of the unsweetened yoghurt and put in a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of salt, and mix. Depending on how you like your sour cream to taste, you can add more vinegar and salt to your liking. You can then mix your chives through the sour cream (or add them on top at the end if you prefer).
  6. When the potato is almost ready, fry off the plant based bacon, usually about 5 minutes or so.
  7. Take out your potato and slice open lengthways and sideways, and spread butter inside it.
  8. Generously fill with your bacon, and add grated cheese before topping with your sour cream for a super simple and tasty meal.

About Adam and Bethany @heretodayvegantomorrow

We are a vegan couple living in the north of England. Adam is originally from Burnley and Bethany from Liverpool. Adam has been vegan for almost three years and Bethany vegan for eleven years.

We've been together for two years, and we got engaged in March 2024.

We're both big animal lovers, and passionate about animal welfare. This is the reason we are both vegan. We often find ourselves involved in animal rescue! For example our last two holidays have seen us spend 300 Euros in Barcelona on a poorly pigeon (which involved veterinary treatment and a 50km trip to an animal sanctuary) and our holiday to Crete last October resulted in us flying home a very sick kitten, who is now fit and well and lives with us with our other cat Tucker (who Bethany hand reared from being a day old).

We created our Instagram page as we wanted to show how easy it can be to embrace the vegan lifestyle. Neither of us consider ourselves to be particularly good in the kitchen! But we like to get creative and share on our page @heretodayvegantomorrow
