most of the time,it's just plain,simple butter. once in a while though,i like ranch dressing,sour cream,bacon,cheese..things like that. one of my favorite things to do is cut it in half and make potato skins of it.

hi dear dfollin, my dear friend, i love potatoes and eating baked potatoes is healthier way to eat. i use to eat it in many ways but now i prefer just no fat youghurt. i think thats the topping which suits me . as i have gained lots of weight but because i have a strong craving for potatoes i just cant avoid it. otherwise before i use to have them with cheese, loads of cheese, butter, broccoli, sour cream, gravy, ground beef, chiili , chives, onion fried, bacon. but that was before, i use to serve my guests with different varities of toppings but now i just serve. i dont eat.

I am very basic. I like sour cream (or yogurt if it is available), butter, and sometimes chives. I will have bacon bits, but usually the most I have is sour cream and butter. Most of the other things I will have with the meat. If I have baked potatoes at home, I will just put on some butter. I do like garlic mashed potatoes, but that is not as baked potatoes. Anyway I cannot have potatoes that much. It seems I have developed a slight intolerance to it, as everytime I have them, I start coughing. I noticed it when we went to restaurants, but I thought it was too much salt, but then since I hardly use salt, I found the same thing when I ate potatoes at home.

I have never heard of yogurt on a baked potato.I can't eat much salt due to having high blood pressure.

Oh how you tease me with your discussions! I haven't had a baked potato in ages! I like sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, and cheddar cheese on mine. If I can add bacon bits, then it is even better! Alas, I have only dreamt about them for the past cou0ple years.

I like sour cream, cheese, mushrooms, pepper, broccoli, bacon bits. Just got me thinking that's what I'm going to fix to eat here in a little bit. I'm starting to get a bit hungry and that sounds good about now.

I'm like you. I'll try almost anything on a baked potato. I don't actually like baked potatoes, but I'll eat them occasionally because they are good for you. Plus, sometimes they - and whatever I can add on top - become the meal for my hubby and me. I'll add veggies of all kinds, and sour cream and cheese, usually. But sometimes I'll add some meat.

If I'm having a baked potato as a side to my meal, I will usually just have butter and salt. If I'm having it by itself for a quick lunch, I love it with broccoli and cheese, butter, salt and pepper. If I'm ordering at a restaurant and they have all sorts of things available, I would opt for bacon too. Yummm! In fact, that sounds mighty good for lunch today, and I'm hungry - headed to the kitchen now!

My husband and i love a baked potato also when we eat our steak. We cook our baked potato in the microve and add all kinds of topping to it. We like to add butter, sour creme, salt, pepper, shredded cheese and some tomato and onion. Have you ever tried that? We use bacon bits on ours sometimes too. I like melted cheese on my baked potato also.
