What do you put on your baked potatoes?

I'm a big fan of "the works" though I know that negates a lot of the nutritional value.

We only bake sweet potatoes, and I love them overcooked and plain

Butter, pinch of salt, lots of black pepper.

We normally eat sweet potatoes and just eat them plain. Sometimes I'll sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar on the kids'. For a white baked potato, I normally just put some salsa on it. :)

I bake them in the microwave in the hot weather. On mine, I like just butter OR low-fat sour cream and homegrown chives, with pepper. Dh just adds butter and pepper. Never tried salsa but thanks for the idea!

 AMIBAD, I'm a big fan of the works too,lol. I heard salsa is very nutritious on them, I haven't tried it though:)

Anything and everything, although just butter, salt, and sour cream will do.  I go light on the butter and salt, and heavy on the sour cream, usually.

DH and I always cook them in the microwave, chop up onion onto them; we use olive oil spread as butter, put lots of salt free seasonings, like parsley, garlic n herbs, Mrs Dash table blend, chives: I have a grinder bottle with sea salt and herbs I use; we have soy bacon bits sometimes, sometimes broccoli florets cooked, fresh chopped tomatoes. As corn is in season now, we cook corn in the husk in the microwave and cut the kernels off the cob. Just bought some Greek-style yogurt and tried the plain on our potatoes; that was delish. Sometimes we use green pea or lentil soups for a sauce. Sometimes we use shredded cheese. Basically we make a meal off potatoes when we fix them.
