I'm pretty much of a purist--just butter and/or sour cream or yogurt, some S&P, and sometimes chives. I don't mind one bit, though, if some of the main course's sauce or jus soaks in!

I was talking to my aunt earlier today and told her I was going to have a baked potato for my dinner (dh is at the farm). I'm going to have it with sour cream, bacon and fresh dill.

I checked butter and sour cream, as that's my basic potato. As mentioned above, if some of the good meat juices get soaked into it, all the better.
But I'm a potato lovin' gal, and just about everything mentioned above sounds good to me.
That idea of scooping everything out of the potato and hiding goodies on the bottom is inspired! That will add to the enjoyment of the potato skin, which is the best part.

I like a good crisp skin on my potato, something you can't get on a micro-waved potato. (Don't get me wrong, I like them too!) I usually rub the skin with olive oil, then roll in coarse salt....Margarita salt works.
Then they go in the oven or on the grill. Kim does that part. He usually wraps the tators in foil for a while, then opens the foil to let them crisp up.

*Note: I guess I could have started a new thread...How do you bake your potatoes?

The skins are my favourite part, and I like them crisp, too. I've never done the OO/salt thing, though. Can't wait to try it next time! I'm not fond of the microwaved potato, though. The closest I get is "pushing" the baking by pre-nuking and finishing in the oven.

More often than not, I scoop out the tater, mix it with a little milk, butter or margarine and lots of shredded cheddar cheese.....have also used fontina. Then of course, back into the oven for the cheese to get all "melty"...yum
