Baked Potato Buffet

Sometimes dinner ideas come from the strangest places:

I didn’t know you need a recipe for making baked potatoes, but I do love this method.  You don’t use foil and pretty much just rub a cleaned potato with oil and salt, voodoo it with a fork and put it directly on the oven rack and cook it for an hour and a half or more.  The kids like helping clean the potatoes and think it’s hilarious when I drag out the fire extinguisher.  I read somewhere that baked potatoes can explode and it freaks me out.  The last thing I want is a fire-y potato flying through my kitchen so I keep the fire extinguisher out for good luck.  A buffet of toppings means the guys usually will eat a lot of veggies and if I leave things like tomatoes, broccoli and onions on the table while I prep the rest, they “sneak” samples, and ultimately more servings of veggies.  Other toppings like sour cream, salsa, guacamole and chili leftover from other meals work too. So this is a seemingly easy dinner, you just have to make sure you leave enough time for your potato to cook completely.  (My first attempt ended with half-cooked potatoes because I started to late with ginormous potatoes and was scared to let them overcook-explode.)
