Five Delicious Ideas for Baked Potato Toppings


Whether you’re looking to create a full on baked potato bar at a party or you’re looking to come up with something a bit more creative to have for dinner tonight, finding new and exciting toppings for your baked potato can make it more exciting. It’s always fun to take your basic meal and turn it into something a little more exciting. While your butter, sour cream and cheese are good, they’re basic. These ideas are much more fun and a lot more delicious.

Herb Butter

Instead of your everyday plain butter, try something a little more exciting. Soften some light butter and add your favorite spices and herbs to it. Make it exciting by adding some fresh cilantro and basil, some oregano, and maybe even a bit of Italian seasoning. You can add whatever you want to your softened butter and place it on your potato for a fresh new taste.


The truth is that bacon goes with anything, on anything, all the time. Bacon is a universal food that really shouldn’t be so unhealthy for all of us. Try putting some bacon on your potato with a bit of cheese for a crunchy addition to your otherwise soft and creamy potato.


If you love chili, you’re really going to love a chili potato. All you have to do is add your favorite chili atop your baked potato and season it and decorate it how you like. It’s chili with a twist or a baked potato with a twist, depending on how you like to look at it.


Yes, onions; on top of a baked potato. But we aren’t talking about just any old onions. We are talking about onions that have been fried and top it with a bit of ranch dressing. This combination is going to knock your socks off and make you want it every night. Just be careful; it’s a lot of calories!


Who doesn’t love a good barbeque? If you love the food that comes along this time of year, add it to your baked potato. Try adding some pulled pork or chicken to the top of your potato and topping that with a bit of cole slaw for a down home southern style baked potato that will make you come back for seconds.
