I make a sort of topping for baked potatoes of frozen broccoli flowerettes nuked with Lipton cream of chicken cup-o-soup. A little blue cheese crumbled on top. Fast & Easy.

I also usually have my own ranch-type dressing which is great on a potato.

Typical American stuff :

Butter & sour cream

Chili & cheddar

Broccoli & cheddar

Any kind of meat & cheese

Butter, Bacon, Cheese, ranch dressing, & onions

Sauteed ground beef, onion, & cheddar

Leftover meatloaf & ketchup

Butter & fresh herbs especially Rosemary or dried herb blends

Garlic butter & sour cream & parmesan

It is assumed I would salt & pepper all of these.

You would?

I wouldn't salt the ones with bacon, cheese, or salad dressing.

Is it the baby potatos that I have posted before?? Always a smashing success in my household too.

I just realized I don't ever salt my baked potatoes, or pepper for that matter. I do salt french fries, boiled potatoes and potato patties, but never baked or mashed/smashed.

Anyone familiar with the small deli chain, "Jasons Deli"?

Check out the size of their baked spuds!








You could feed a family of 4 on these things!!

Who wants to kill your garlic chives? I'd volunteer for the job by eating them. I'm pretty sure eating them kills them...

Nope, you just eat the leaves. That doesn't kill the plant.
