about, oh, maybe a year ago i had this revelation: a potato is a vegetable! huzzah!
so when i began to introduce more fruits and vegetables into my diet the potato was this miracle.
to cook i clean the potato, poke holes all over (with a fork), coat in a tiny bit of butter and salt, and place in the oven at 450 degrees for an hour.
from there that potato becomes the proverbial oyster...you can put anything in it! i always go with greek yogurt (which in this context tastes like sour cream), kerrygold cheddar, and scallions.
when i'm looking to mix things up i'll add in refried beans, mushrooms, or avocado.
it's cheap, simple, and packed full of protein.
