I like Broccoli and creamed chipped beef on baked potato for a simple tasty dinner or supper. It's all there.

However, when it's a side, I like to go low fat/cal and like them simply with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. very tasty that way!

Well waddayaknow... I just had a potato with a little butter mixed into the flesh and then stuffed with cottage cheese and sprinkled with a little freshly ground pepper mix.

Oh so good.

I make a compound butter with finely minced parsley. Then I "pop" that tater open (fluffing the insides as it opens), and push a good tablespoon sized piece of compound butter in. Then I push the tater closed and let it sit a couple minutes before chowing.

I bake the taters right on the oven racks. Only thing I do beforehand is rub the skins with a drop of canola oil and sprinkle of salt (along with a a few well-placed stabs of a fork to vent the interior).

I would second the request on au jus spooned overtop when accompanied by roasted meats.

The other day I tried my sautčed mushrooms with sour cream, very similar to the creamed shroom recipe Kadesma posted the other day, on top of the jacket potato, it was a wonderful combination, we loved it!!
Also steamed broccoli smothered in melted gorgonzola is nice on the spuds too.

I like mine with Greek yoghurt, chopped spring onions, bacon bits and a sprinkling of pepper.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Baked potatoes are the most brilliant platforms for so many good things (as is vanillia ice cream.

Great ideas, everyone!

I never ever thought there would be anyone else in the world that liked 57 on their baked potatoe but me. I went on a diet once that let me have baked potatoes with either 57 or mustard. I love them to this day with 57 and chives on them. I also think they are good with Blue Cheese Salad Dressing and Green Onions. Obviously not on that diet.

Oops I forgot one other odd baked potatoe thing we like. I make a sort of salsa with canned tomatoes, green onions, and corn. We put that in the potatoe and then melt cheddar on top. I know it sounds strange, but it's really good.
