Loaded potatoes have always been one of my favorite quick dinners. When I was younger my parents would wrap potatoes in foil and pop them into the fireplace until they were charred on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
Now we have a gas fireplace and can't do that, but we can still do baked potatoes in the oven, and we do them often. And by we, I mean it's normally on a night when the man is in charge of dinner. He does a pretty yummy bacon, cheese and green onion topped potato. I love to mix things up though and try different toppings, and baked potatoes are perfect because you can put so many things on them, and it's perfect meal for using up leftovers.
For example, let's say you purchased veggie burgers and only have one or two left in the box in the freezer, or you have half used vegetables, then this is perfect to make an easy weeknight meal.
