Baked Potatoes with Onions
  • baking potatoes
  • butter
  • onion, sliced thin
  • salt and pepper
  1. Cut the potatoes part way through. Pry them open gently with the knife.
  2. Spread a bit of butter into each potato.
  3. Place some onion slices into each potato and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Wrap each potato in foil and bake at 350-400 degrees for 1-1½ hours.

  3. My kids love baked potato night and I love how easy it is! This looks really good – I used to hate onions with anything but something shifted when I was pregnant with my third baby and since then I love onions with everything!

  4. These look soooo good. I love potatoes and onions so this recipe is great cuz I can have onions, and the kids don’t have too!

  5. My husband and I enjoyed these with some $1.00 filet mignons and steamed broccoli! haha We’ll definitely do the potatoes again, but…. not the steaks. Ugh. haha
