Nikki Halkerston, 44, was unloading her weekly shop onto the kitchen counter when she was greeted by the face of Christ in a pack of £1.15 Aldi spuds.
She immediately called her husband over to take a look, who agreed the marking resembled the Lord’s son.
Receptionist Nikki, from Dundee, Scotland, said: “As soon as I put the packet on the kitchen top I saw it.
“I was staring at it and it was just quite obvious it was Jesus’ face. It was just looking at me.
“I’ve seen stories before about people finding Jesus in their food but I can never usually see it. This was just so obviously him.

“I called my husband into the kitchen and he’s usually really sceptical about these sort of things.
“He never gets over-excited about anything but even he agreed it looked like Jesus!”
However the potato hasn’t been preserved to be used in a shrine or sold as a memento online – Nikki was too hungry for that.
“I’ve eaten it now,” she confirmed.
There’s a long history of eagle-eyed Jesus-spotters claiming to have spied the son of God’s face in food items, household objects or out and about in nature.
In October Amy Cathrine McCue, 26, thought she saw a familiar bearded figure in the potato scone she was frying.
“When I first saw it I was going to keep it felt like it was a sign from him,” she told the Daily Record at the time.
“I ate it because he told me to. It was like a Biblical sacrifice.”
Last May John Dickon, 43, noticed Jesus’ face in a tree trunk while he was chopping it up for firewood.
The dad-of-two, from Morecambe, Lancs, said: “It wasn’t until I stacked up the wood that I spotted it.
“It totally freaked me out and I had to stop working. It was just there.”
