Most flavorfull baked potatoes

Joan Hunt


This is a variation on a potato my mom used to make when we were growing up. But she used butter instead of olive oil. and sometimes added Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.

These are great to accompany any grilled or roasted vegetable medley or just with a side salad for a meal. also good topped with chili.
