“It seems silly posting something as simple as a baked potato, but this is so darn good! I created this when I was eighteen and we did a lot of entertaining...usually bring your own meat bbq's lol. I like it because it has everything in it, including it's own bacon bits, travels well, can be prepared ahead of time and gets rave reviews every time and is most always requested. Note: Depending on what meat I am serving I will add an appropriate herb to my potato, eg: if I am cooking lamb I will add rosemary to my potato. You can let your potato cook longer to get that delish crispy peel....nummy.”
