No, not all the time, but when you are thinking about what to serve with baked potatoes you have us covered just like always. We will explore traditional side dishes (usually meat and potatoes) but give you a few different ideas you may not have thought of before. Hopefully, you can think of something that will work for you this time around.
You might be surprised at how many people use a baked potato as a main course for their meal. And that is not necessarily because they enjoy this recipe. They may be using it as a part of a bigger dish. Either way, here is what you can serve with a baked potato.
Baked potatoes are usually used in the winter as the main course or an appetizer to go along with the main dish. If you have been having problems coming up with appetizers during the fall and winter months, then you should consider this as one of them. A baked potato is very easy to make and the taste really isn’t bad. It’s probably even tastier than you would expect.
One of the best ways to serve with baked potato is to use a variety of meats and vegetables. For instance, if your meal has a lot of cheese in it, then you can serve the cheese with the potatoes. This is a great way to combine flavors that don’t normally go together. However, it does need a little preparation.
First, cut the cheese into small pieces. Then you will want to dip the cheese into milk and place it on top of the potatoes. Next, cut up the onions, celery, and any other vegetables that would be a good fit. You may even have to slice the potatoes so they fit.
Depending on what vegetables you choose, you may want to add some salt and pepper to make sure that the cheese is really creamy and not too overpowering. After you have the mixture on, you can sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper over it. And then bake it in the oven.
Another thing you can serve with a baked potato is something with eggs. This includes anything that has the yolk. You could do scrambled eggs or omelets with them. If you are trying something different then you can even use the yolk from an egg white. Either way, they are both delicious.
Whatever you choose to serve with your meal, try these ideas. They are great and very easy to make and they are easy to put together.
You can cook rice on top of the baked potato and top it with any vegetables you like. It makes a great breakfast and it is much better for you than most fast food places.
Takes some cooked egg and some lettuce and then make an omelet out of them. This is a good idea if you are eating for two and you don’t want to spend money on a large meal. For example, instead of buying a large order of French fries, you can take a package of French fries and wrap them up in lettuce and use an egg sandwich as the cover.
Another thing you can serve with a baked potato is chili. You can use any kind of chili you want but make sure it is hot enough.
Another good idea is to take some beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers, and celery and mix them with some salsa. Then you can serve them with the baked potatoes and then dip them in a little chili sauce and serve it with the potatoes.
This is another great idea because it combines the flavor of both the beans and the salsa. It is healthier and more economical.
