My favourite baked potato is a nice sized russet, holes poked with a fork all over, baked without foil in a hot oven. Cut in half, fluff up the meat a little with a fork, top with some butter, blue cheese and crumbled bacon. YUM!

All your topping sound yummy guys :)

My favourite topping for baked potatoes is chopped onion and swiss chard sauteed with garlic and chillies and topped with sharp cheddar cheese sauce.

I also like to scoop out the flesh (save it for mash) then adding a knob of butter to the potato skin, then adding an egg into the hollow, season with salt and pepper and some chopped chillies. Top with grated cheese and grill in a hot oven till cheese is melted and the egg white is set and the yolk still runny. Served with crispy bacon and roasted tomatoes.

If we eat out I order baked potato with lots of sour cream and it it with green salad.

My kids like baked potato stuffed with baked beans and a little mayo. Topped with grated cheese then grilled till crisp on top.

Sometimes we top our baked potatoes with curried ground beef and eat as a main dish etc. etc.

At Fanueil Hall (a tourist trap) there is a pushcart that sells just baked potatoes with any topping you want. He must have at least 25 choices. Does a great business during the summer. And they have crispy skins, no foil. When I worked in the Financial District, I would run up there and get a couple for lunch.

Many years ago there used to be a baked potato store in one of the local malls. They had huge potatos like Tattrat's pictures. I loved their cheddar, sour cream, butter, bacon potatos and would almost always get that but once in a while would get their seafood potato, which was a mix of crab and shrimp in a creamy sauce. Sadly, they closed up shop, though I really don't know why as every time I was in there place was packed.

I'm so glad I can peek.

Life isn't worth it without a peek every now and then.

I got lazy last night and just baked my taters so no peeking was necessary.

And I went simple with Salt, Pepper,and Butter.

A baked tater and Home made chicken soup made a woderful meal for a cold night.

Sometimes simple is the best.

I was thinking that there wasn't a bad way to serve a baked potato until I read this one, my friend. It's only because I don't like tuna, but this one doesn't sound good to me. Isn't it nice that there are so many different ways to top a potato? I just love baked potatoes! It depends on my mood, and today chicken, fried onions, peppers, and cheese sounds great!

Oh Snip!
Whatever would I do without you? I've only got about 10 litres of the stuff in my store cupboard because I use it all the time. Never put 2 and 2 together. Thank you. Obviously I'm not up on the jingo!!
