    They are my favorite fast food, well not fast as in cooking time, but fast as in prep time, the problem is the toppings, i have ran out of ideas, cheese is
    good as is chili (from a tin), whatever, it must be a strong tasting topping,
    any ideas?

    I do pretty much all of the above.

    I've had baked potatoes with butter, salt and pepper,

    with Sour cream, bacon bits, fresh chives and cheese! :tongue2: (garlic optional)

    with chili, cheese and jalapeños, with or without hot (tobasco) sauce :tongue2:

    with sour cream, cheese and picante sauce or salsa, :tongue2:

    and various other combinations.

    I don't remember Ranch dressing - but it's on my list - Thanks, larkspur!

    Brie is another ingredient I have yet to try. Thanks, Kurdt!

    Also curries and chutneys are good!

    Lemon peppers? never heard of those ones, jalapeños are bland almost like
    eating pea pods.

    Substitute habaneros for jalapeños. I think lemon pepper refers to black pepper soaked in lemon juice, which is then dried and powdered.

    Woolie, you must try this! Bake the potatoes, rescue from the oven and scoop out most of the flesh (for use in other dishes). Scuff up the remaining flesh and drizzle finely-minced sauteed fresh onion and garlic into the potato skins along with the butter that they were browned in, shake on salt and pepper, then top with a very sharp cheddar and re-bake until the cheese starts to brown. These are not describable in any real terms! You have to experience them, and then fight off your relatives who are convinced that you are THE chef.

    Yes, I am in heaven when I devour these potatoes, but my wife insists on adding sour cream.
