Sunday we had a baked potato bar. So easy and so delish!
The Most Incredible Baked Potatoes Ever
1 bag of those huge baking potatoes from COSTCO, you most likely won't need the whole bag, our boys plus 3 extras, left only 1 potato for hash browns.
Scrub potatoes, I have a handy dandy potato scrubber that looks like this, it works fabulously.
Stab potatoes 6 or 7 times on each side with a paring Knife.
Roll in melted butter, margarine might possibly produce acceptable results, but why risk it.
Place on baking sheet then sprinkle both sides liberally with kosher salt.
Bake at 350 degrees for 2-3 hours, we like the skins extra crispy.
You barely need salt and butter with these heavenly spuds.
Fun things we topped 'em with:
De-frosted frozen peas, for Boy Mom.
Ranch dressing for Adorable Hubby.
Olives, for #'s 5,6,7.
Ham chunks, boys need meat.
Steamed broccoli, our little nod to healthy.
Cheese, grated and melted.
Chili, 'cause flatulence is soooo funny!
Chopped green onions, yum!
Sour Cream, for #1.
Bacon bits, we can't get enough pig.
BBQ sauce, #2's idea, he's a little weird;)
Creamed Corn, yea, were hicks!
Green peppers, yuck! I do these for my mom.
Sauteed mushrooms, they make everything better.
Brussel sprouts, just kidding.
This is some seriously good grub, and no one hit me up for a bowl of cereal 20 minutes later.
