Recipe

Make Your Own Baked Potatoes With Special Sauce

  • Yield: 4 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 large baking potatoes, like russets, scrubbed (2 1/2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • SPECIAL SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon Baby Bam
  • OPTIONAL KICKED UP TOPPINGS:
  • Grated cheddar
  • Crumbled crispy bacon
  • Chopped ham
  • Steamed chopped broccoli

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and make sure the oven rack is in the center position.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Rub with the oil, and season with the salt and pepper on all sides.
  • Bake until fork-tender, about 1 hour.
  • To make the Special Sauce, in a small bowl combine all the ingredients and stir well to blend.
  • Remove potatoes from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Using oven mitts or potholders, carefully transfer the hot potatoes to a plate and serve with the Special Sauce. Serve optional toppings, as desired.
