Welcome back to Foodie Tuesday! Today I'm sharing a really easy dinner idea with you. It's cheap, easy, and a great way to use up random stuff that you have in your fridge. Gotta love those dinners.

Last week I price-matched some great groceries and decided to make:

Loaded Baked Potatoes
So easy, no recipe involved, really!

You simply…

  • Get yourself some cheap potatoes (I bought a couple of really big ones). 
  • Wrap them in foil, 
  • Stab with a fork a few times, 
  • Bake at 425 degrees for an hour or so (or until they are nice and soft. You'll know they are done by sticking them with a fork). 
    • Don't have a full hour? Stab your potatoes with a fork, DON'T wrap in foil, but microwave on high for 5 minutes. Flip the potato over, microwave 5 minutes more. Repeat until the spuds are cooked.
    Once they are baked, top with fun toppings! We like:
    • Cheese
    • Bacon bits
    • Green onion (chives)
    • Yellow onion
    • Sour cream
    • Ranch dressing
    • Garlic pepper seasoning
    • Steamed broccoli
    • Cheese sauce
    • Chili
    • Baked beans
    • Corn
    • Fried egg (so good!)
    • Salsa
    You can basically put anything on a baked potato.
    Serve with a salad and you have yourself a filling and super cheap meal! And hey, depending on what you put on your potato, it could be pretty healthy for you. Just be sure to eat the potato skin; that's where all the nutrients are.
    Happy eating!
