To each his (or her) own! Offer an array of potato toppers to keep everyone happy.
medium baking potatoes
Sour cream and finely chopped green onion
Hot cooked chopped broccoli and shredded mozzarella cheese
Hot chili and shredded Cheddar cheese
Whipped cream cheese
Scrub potatoes; prick several times with fork to allow steam to escape. Place potatoes on microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on High 3 minutes; turn potatoes over. Microwave 3 minutes 30 seconds to 5 minutes longer or until tender. Wrap potatoes in foil; let stand 5 minutes.
Cut slit in tops of potatoes and carefully squeeze to open. Top each with desired topper.
Go ahead and make this recipe a couple of times so you have leftover baked potatoes. The baked potatoes reheat quickly in an oven (the dry heat of the oven will crisp up the skin).
You can serve these make-your-own potatoes on the side, or make a meal out of them by adding shredded chicken or canned beans, rinsed and drained, to the list of toppings.
