My bro made a big baker last night with the fixins you mentioned, but he was pissed at himself because he forgot to buy some bacon bits at the store.

Bacon, cheese, sour cream and butter!

My best friend likes chili. She worked in a food court restaurant called "One Potato Two" when she was in high school and that's how she came to like chili on her potato.

I like them well fluffed and well done with butter and salt. a little more when they are empty to polish off the skins.

Aunt Bea, you always have such neat ideas. In all my life, I've never tried Blue Cheese on a spud. I love spuds, I love Blue Cheese...just never thought to combine them.

I'm trying it!

Is there a bad way to have a potato? Some days I'm in the mood for simple butter and seasoned salt. Sometimes add pepper. Sour cream, cheddar cheese, chili, bacon, broccoli, chives, garlic salt, ranch dressing all have found their way onto a spud in my house.

Blue cheese on a baked potato is fantastic. You can mash it into a little sour cream or just mash it right into the potato.

I love to drizzle a baked spud with browned garlic butter and sprinkle on some chives. A drizzle of bacon grease mixed into cream cheese and some fresh crumbled bacon is good. Shredded cheddar is pretty tastey on spuds, especially with a little sauteed celery and onion. Crumbled italian sausage, fresh basil and a little parmesian are good mashed into the potato too. I'm also a fan of just a little butter and salt with maybe either some chives or parsley.

I grew a type of spud just for baking this year. I subbed it for the biscuits in biscuits and gravy.
