I switched to yams instead of potatoes - more fibre - and don't need anything on they because they're so sweet. Occasionally I fall off the wagon & put no fat sour creme or some OLD grated cheese on them.

I dress a baked potato with salsa! It's yummy and much healthier. You can also add some fat free sour cream, or plain yogurt!!

We have nothing to lose but bad habits!

Before -- The Works
However, ue to adverse interactions with medicine... no cheese or bacon -- So now it's a small amount of Smart Balance butter/olive oil (sometimes with seasoned pepper) or I have a couple of tablespoons of low fat sour cream, If I add salt, I use a small amount of sea salt.

My first thought was to say 'as nature intended...with sour cream and bacon bits!' But since its not as my heath intended...I should correct that to say . With low fat sour cream and no butter. Which is ok too!

I have also used peppercorn ranch or cucumber ranch dressing in the past but cannot find that where I live now, so low fat sour cream it is! Sometimes with a bit of cheese if I forget to buy the SC.

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

I don't eat baked potatoes much but when I like sour cream and butter. Sometimes if I add chives, and a little shredded cheese.

I have never heard of that...I will have to check it out. Do you buy it in a speciality area of the grocery? And you say it taste like sour cream. We all need to find that and try it out.

Thanks for the tip...

Instead of sour cream I use plain greek yogurt. The brand I use, Fage (pronounced Fa-yeh) taste like sour cream. It is not bitter like other plain yogurt I have tried. With 0% fat and 23g of protein, 130 cals per cup; I find that to be the best topping to add with the extras. It's a meal when I have a bake potato.

One Day At a Time. I only have today and I will make the very best of it.

I like twice baked...with sour cream and chives baked in sprinkled with cheese. A good old Michigan or Idaho Potato is fine with me.

Plain Greek yogurt, fat free is creamy and good on a baked potato with some pepper, a little salt. Other types of yogurt can be good also.

I eat the butter and sour cream and leave the potato. I eat some of the skin if it is yummy and chewy.
The big white farmed potatoes have loads more carbs than a home-grown one, or a red one or even a yellow.

Here's a low cal treat! Potato Pizzas..
Slice a large chef's potato into 1/4 " slices, bake until dry.

Brush dry potatos with herbed tomato sauce. place sliced 'zucchini/ mushroom/ artichoke/ spinach' followed by a square of veggie swiss cheese. Brush again with tomato sauce - sprinkle with veggie mozzarella shreds. Bake at 400 degrees F until browned.

Add to broiled meat or salmon like I did last friday night. Filling with some left over for next day at lunch.

I use soy yogurt, pre-made low fat salad dressings, to mash my baked potatoes in. Scoop mashed mix back into skin and brown tips, then sprinkle with shaved herbs for greener eating.

safe passage this week.

I've not tried "Butter Buds" I could get some of those. I'm not sure if I would go for olive oil on my potatoes.

Thanks.

I love baked potatoes, too, but I now only have them on special occasions and go ahead with the butter (and sour cream-sorry you can't get it!) I also use more pepper for the flavor.
I have switched to baked sweet potatoes in place of the baked potatoes and eat them with just a very little bit of "I can't believe it's not butter", mediterranean or olive oil.

I love baked potatoes with butter and sour cream but I live in Africa in the jungle and I have no sour cream. Now I have a problem with my cholesterol so the butter is not the best choice. Today I used a Lite Ranch dressing on my potato.

How do you Dress a Baked Potato? What do you LIKE to use on your baked potatoes and what have you found that is low fat, low cholesterol to dress up baked potatoes?
