I love jacket potatoes because they are so versatile. (some people call them baked potatoes). They are good for you and there are so many fillings you can add along with a little side salad. You can cook them in the oven for a crispy skin or put them in the microwave for quickness. Do you like them and if so what is your favourite filling? Mine is just a little butter and cheese melted on the top or tuna mayonnaise.

Cheese would be my favorite along with bacon bits.

@Courage7 Everybody is saying that so that must mean I should try it too.

I like baked potatoes topped with sour cream and chives, American style I suppose.

@LadyDuck I've had them with cottage cheese and chives and that's really tasty too.

@sprite1950 I have never tried with cottage cheese, but I am sure it's good.

@LadyDuck It's nice in the summer if you fancy something cold as a filling.

I loved baked potatoes. I prefer butter and salt on mine.

@Corbin5 Sometimes I don't want any more than that although I am a bit extravagant with the butter sometimes.

@sprite1950 I do use "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" which has zero calories. Not sure how they made that butter, but the ingredients are safe.

@Corbin5 I'm using that at the moment although I'll try the light versions of most things like Flora light.

@sprite1950 If and when I use bacon, it is only after having it drained from the fat and only in tiny pieces, just to give some taste.

@marlina I don't eat bacon that often but it is quite fatty but I daresay the odd occasion won't hurt

I love potatoes in any form. We make stuffed potatoes sometimes. They are potatoes stuffed with hamburger meat, onion, bell peppers, cheese, butter, sour cream, bacon, and really whatever else you want to put in it. They can also be called Philly cheese steak potatoes.

@sprite1950 They are a great food for people who love condiments. I love Chick-Fil-a's honey roasted bbq sauce and it tastes great on french fries.

@houda28 It's a large potato baked in the oven or microwave and then cut in half and filled with something nice. You can put any sort of savoury filling in it, like in the picture I have put up.

Baked potatoes is not something we do here although we have various other uses of potatoes.
