Toothsome Tuesday

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.
Asparagus, fancy.
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.

Ooops, apparently if you accidentally double click on the "Publish Your Comment" icon it posts it twice. Should I try triple clicking on this one?

Not only is that so yummy looking---but doesn't even come close to breaking the junk food avoidance that we start TOMORROW!

You are such a fun mom, providing all of those options. My kids are lucky if I throw butter and sour cream at them. They are really living the good life when I grate some cheese.

They are not allow to read this post. EVER.

You did green peppers for me and didn't even invite me? The cookies and rolls that I got were sure good though.

Does it make your skin break out after you roll in melted butter? ;o)

We like to make cheese sauce to serve over our baked potatoes, along with the chili, some bacon, sour cream and lots of other good stuff. As a kid we used brocolli and cheese sauce with it over the potato.

Try adding garlic to the kosher salt. The golden yukon taters are the best.
