Baked Potatoes – Endless Possibilities


So today’s post isn’t really a recipe, but hopefully it will have you looking at baked potatoes differently. A lot of this information came from a recipe article in my Jan/Feb issue of Simple and Delicious. Baked potatoes are really versatile and are a great way to use up leftovers from the fridge. With the baked potato also comes the sweet potato. There are some really fun ideas to top those too. Hopefully, I give you some inspiration and have you looking differently at the baked potato or sweet potato.
