Baked potatoes are a great side dish and can also be transformed into a full meal. Our recipe will outline how to make a perfect baked potato that is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. While sour cream and chives are a very traditional (and tasty) topping, you can add almost anything to your baked potato. Cheese and bacon crumbles are two toppings that can help make your baked potato into a complete dinner. Whatever you top it with, you will love this recipe for its ease and wonderful flavor!
-You can bake the potatoes up to 3 days in advance. Reheat in the microwave when you are ready to eat them and then add the toppings.
-You do not need to wrap the potatoes individually in the foil but can bake them on a sheet tray if you would like. Wrapping the potatoes in the foil will help keep some moisture in and help them bake more evenly however, baking them on a sheet tray will work fine.
