Baked Potato Bar

I know, a baked potato with toppings is a pretty simple, no duh meal.  But it's one that my whole family loves, and is so easy to do!  Here is my favorite way to make this simple dish.  (picture credit: the yummy life. My camera is missing today, so I googled a yummy looking image!)

Wash and dry as many potatoes as your family needs.  Russet are the best for this.

Rub the outside of the potatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and lay them on a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides) lined with foil.  Poke them with a fork.  (Do not wrap the potatoes in foil, they taste better this way!)

Crack fresh salt and pepper on the outside of the potatoes, and then bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, more depending on the quantity and size of your potatoes.

While baking, prep the following toppings:

Shredded cheese
Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Green onions

Broccoli & Cheese Sauce: (quick and easy!)
I buy the Ragu cheddar cheese sauce in a jar (in my store, it's by the spaghetti sauces)
Steam or cook your broccoli until almost soft.  Add the cheese sauce, and heat through.

Sour cream, butter, salt, and pepper.

Once potatoes are soft, remove from oven, cut open and top as desired!
