"My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with." ~ Oprah Winfrey

If you share that sentiment, you will be delighted to try all the variations we have on a basic baked potato recipe.

Baked Potato Recipes

There are dozens of  ways to make a baked potato. However most of us are very used to making baked potatoes with hardly a glance at a recipe. We just take a few baking potatoes, scrub them with skins on, prick them in a few places so they don't burst while baking, heat the oven to 350 - 400 degrees, place the potatoes in a baking pan or directly on the oven rack, and bake for 35 - 45 minutes.

And yet...we also know there are lots of variations. Here is our first of many pages about baked potatoes:

Twice Baked Potato Recipes

Twice baked potatoes are almost as easy as basic baked potatoes but the recipes are a bit "elevated" with some added ingredients and a few extra steps. 

They make a perfect potato dish for guests or a holiday meal. A twice baked potato can also be a meal in themselves. Just add a salad to the menu and you can have an easy meal that is festive enough for almost any occasion.

Baked potato soup is served in a bowl yet gives you the opportunity to get creative with the tastes of a traditional baked potato.
