This is an easy way to dress up a baked potato.  Only Jim and I like our potatoes with onions, so I make plain ones for the kids.

Here’s what you’ll need:

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.

Here’s what the potatoes look like when they’re ready to be wrapped in foil.
