Embellished Baked Potatoes

*This is a very simple and flexible meal idea that can be altered to suit your taste; we make many different variations!*

whole washed potatoes
bacon, diced and fried
grated cheese
finely chopped green onions (shallots)
sour cream

Preheat oven to 200ºC (390ºF).
Wrap potatoes it aluminium foil.  Place on baking tray in oven.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Carefully open foil and check if potatoes are baked, using a fork to stab the potato.  If not tender, rewrap and bake until potatoes are tender.
Cut potato into quarters without cutting through the bottom of the potato.  Place on dinner plates.
Using generous portions, top potato with a dab of butter, hot bacon, cheese, green onion, and a dollop of sour cream.  The more ingredients on the baked potato, the more delicious it is!!

- Instead of bacon, use fried and diced ham, or bolognaise meat sauce, or other meat of your choice.
- Add vegetables: chopped lettuce, diced fresh tomatoes, hot corn, or other cooked or fresh vegetables.
