wash them all, prick them roll them in olive oil and salt a bit. Put them in the oven at 400 and bake them. When they are finished, let cool. Then scoop inside out. In a bowl, a bit of milk, mash them. Then add whatever.. Bacon bits, cheese, sourcream. And then restuff. sprinkle bit of cheese and warm back up. These also can just be warmed in oven. Just an idea

Or a potato casserole, mashed with butter and milk, some bacon, cheddar cheese, and maybe a little scallion, bake in a casserole pan and bring a little sour cream for on the side? Hope this helps.

I'd do scalloped potatoes or potato salad. I had an AMAZING "loaded baked potato" potato salad last night from Winn Dixie - it was very creamy, had bacon, cheese, maybe onion? I don't know, but it was really good.

I do a red potato salad with green onions, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing. I'm sure it would work with regular potatoes, too.

Potato salad.

Boil the potatoes in the skins till tender. Peel---very easy to do when cooked. Cut into cubes, add mayo, sweet pickle relish (drained), and mashed up hard-boiled eggs. Mix well.

Sprinkle paprika on top prior to serving.

Oven Baked Zesty Potatoes

2 LARGE Idaho or Russet Potatoes
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray
Seasoned pepper
Herb and Garlic seasoning
Parmesan Cheese
Garlic Salt

Scrub the potatoes really good and dry. Using a very sharp knife,
score the potatoes on top....(or cut into it like 'tic-tac-toe').
Just enough that it cuts into the potato, but NOT cutting it in
half.Spray well with the butter spray (0 fat)..and sprinkle well
with the seasoned pepper, garlic and herb seasoning, parmesan cheese
and lightly garlic salt it. Respray the butter on top of this to
keep the seasonings all in tact.Bake in a 375 degree oven for an
hour. You may need to add some water in the bottom of the cookie
sheet to keep it from smoking up your kitchen, plus the water makes
steam which causes the potato to cook faster. You don't want to
cover them because you want them to have a nice crispy, seasoned
top.Test with a fork for tenderness.

I have this recipe in my oven right now. The recipe says to use new potatoes but I use regular russetts and they are yummy. This recipe has mostly ingredients that are pretty common so you would not have to make a trip to the store for extra ingredients. :)
