I hesitated to post these, I thought, who wants to see baked potatoes?  Then I thought, no, these are awesome, they are homemade, everyone likes them right down to the high chair, these are the real food we grew up with as kids.  My mom always topped hers with homemade chili.

Be creative and use what you have, kale chips and guacamole make great toppings too.  When I thought I had nothing in the fridge for dinner, I was actually able to pull together a pretty satisfying meal, save this one as a back up plan.

Loaded Baked Potatoes


  • Baked Potatoes
  • Toppings I used (all optional): shredded cheddar, chopped red onion, bacon, black beans, tomatoes, salsa, plain yogurt, roasted broccoli, kale chips
  • Other topping ideas: guacamole or sliced avocado, corn, cooked chicken, cilantro, olives, scallions


  1. Preheat oven to 400 convection bake. Put the potatoes in right away (just wash them), they will take the longest. Anything else that needs to be cooked can be done in the oven on sheet pans while the potatoes are cooking, you will just need to watch them and take each item out when it is done...this includes the bacon, broccoli, and kale chips.
  2. When the potatoes are soft, slit them and squeeze them open and top them with everything!
