Expert Tips

Leftover baked potatoes reheat quickly in an oven. (The dry heat of the oven will crisp up the skin). Make potatoes ahead of time if you'd like to speed things up another night.

Perfect as a side veggie, build-your-own baked potatoes also make a full meal if offered with toppings that include shredded chicken, taco meat or beans.
