I love to make baked potatoes. Not only do the kids adore them, they are very easy to throw together. Here are a couple of my favorite spuds.

The Everything Potato

Stuff a baked potato with everything you have in the house. This includes butter, salt, sour cream, chopped chives, veggie bacon and anything else you love. Yummy!

The Pizza Potato

Top a split potato with marinara or pizza sauce plus shredded cheese. Be sure to reheat the potato long enough for the cheese to melt.

The Sloppy Joe Potato

Slice a baked potato down the middle. Top with Vegetarian Almost Joes. Shredded cheese is optional.

The Double Cheesy

Combine drained cottage cheese, shaved Parmesan, chopped green onions, white pepper, basil, garlic powder and paprika. Mix well and add to your baked potato.

Leftovers Potato

Stuff a potato with leftover cubes of meat or chicken, plus the sauce that originally accompanied it. If you have any veggies left from the meal, that’s a bonus.

Sweet Potato Deliciousness

Scoop out the insides of the potatoes. Combine the flesh with butter, brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon, miniature marshmallows and chopped pecans. Re-stuff the potatoes and bake for 20 more minutes.

Here are some other quick ideas:

sauteed onions w/ or w/o garlic

lightly steamed cauliflower and cheese

ricotta (plain or seasoned with salt, pepper and fresh herbs of any kind)

lightly steamed broccoli and cheese

garlic salt, black pepper, paprika, red pepper, chives, butter, sour cream, or plain yogurt, grated cheese, black olives

butter and cream of celery soup

Parmesan cheese sprinkled over another topping

garlic, vegan chicken broth, sour cream, pepper, Parmesan and paprika mixed with mashed potatoes

cheese, sour cream and veggies

plain or herbed cream cheese (you can make your own)

fresh snipped herbs like parsley, tarragon, chervil, chives…don’t mix

feta with or without the addition of  sour cream

salsa, shredded cheese and some sour cream

chopped leftover cooked veggies with some kind of creamy topping

grated cheese and grilled onions

tomatoes, green onion, pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar

butter, salt, pepper and lightly steamed, sauteed or microwaved bell pepper slices

cream cheese mixed with handful of  hot cooked veggies

black beans and salsa

sour cream (low-fat is okay but non-fat won’t have enough creaminess)

sauteed peppers and onions

plain yogurt or plain yogurt seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic

broccoli or spinach dip

sauteed green peppers, onions, sour cream, butter, salt and pepper
