Butter and salt plus any other toppings desired (see note)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse and scrub the potatoes and pat dry.
Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet that has been lined with foil (easy cleanup!). Bake for 45-55 minutes, until a sharp knife easily inserts into the center of the potatoes, and they are soft and tender if you give them a squeeze. Use a clean kitchen towel to squeeze them.
Slice the potatoes open and fill with your desired seasonings and toppings.
Brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and salt
Maple syrup, butter, and toasted pecans
Sour cream, chives, salt, and pepper
Blue cheese, walnuts and honey
Mini marshmallows, brown sugar and cinnamon (pop it under the broiler to toast the marshmallows a bit)
