So I bought a 10-lb bag of baking potatoes, just for me...I'm a sucker for a sale.  Roll Eyes  I've started taking them to microwave at work, yay for easy lunches!  Anyone have any good ideas for easy toppings?  Here are a few that I've done so far:

-Mix equal amounts of salsa and plain yogurt, add a chopped green onion (aka the "Nacho-tato") -- also makes a good dressing for taco salad
-chopped broccoli and shredded cheese from the cafeteria salad bar
-greens sauteed with garlic and cayenne pepper, mixed with canned white beans
-sauteed garlic and onions with minced tempeh and nutritional yeast (this one was a little dry so I added some margarine when I reheated it)

Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

They sound goooood.
My favourite is really plain, but so good.
I just put in cheese, cream, sourcream, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.
Mash it all together.
I love it.

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.

My favorite is sauteed mushrooms with garlic, topped with sour cream and chives.  Mmmm...hungry just thinking of it.

For the love of all things scrumptious or crafty

I have found that sour cream and salsa = an awesome taste! (Put it on my cheese quesadillas!)

Getting back into crafting! Follow along with me on my blog and see what I come up with! Smiley

Okay, this is making me so hungry but I do ranch dressing and cheese.  Super!

Vegetarian not vegan recipe:

Fry an onion in a little oil, add some chopped mushrooms and sautee until brown. Add some cooked spinach (water pressed out so it's almost dry) add half a tub of cream cheese (I use Philadelphia light) and stir adding some black pepper and grated nutmeg.

Lovely on a Sweet Potato but normal jacket potatoes are just as nice!

Just to add it's looks quite disgusting kind of green with grey sauce but the taste more than makes up for it Smiley
