Baked Potato Dinner with 4 Toppings

Baked Potato Dinner with 4 Toppings

This is a fun dinner for four with 4 Toppings. 
I like to quarter my baked potato and then add the 4 different toppings separately.  I have a few OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) tendencies and do not like my food to touch (seriously).  (My sectioned plate only has 3 compartments so I couldn't use that plate for this meal......therapy didn't help).

All kidding aside - this meal is also very inexpensive - my local grocery store just had a 10 pound bag of Idaho Potatoes on sale for $1.88!  Also, I bought many of the toppings when there were on sale.

The first thing to do is scrub and bake 4 large potatoes.  While the potatoes are baking prepare the different toppings listed below:


Topping #1 - Bacon & butter
I chopped and fried 1/2 pound of smoked bacon.
Butter at room temerature.


Topping #2 - Sauteed Mushrooms & Onions
1 small package of mushrooms (washed & chopped or sliced)
1 small onion (peeled and minced)
olive oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
(saute the onion in a little olive oil until transparent and then add the mushrooms and Worcestershire Sauce & cook for another few minutes)

Topping #3 - Sour Cream & Green Onions (or Chives if in season)
Wash & chop the green onions (or Chives)
Scoop as much sour cream as desired

Topping #4 - Broccoli & Nacho Cheese Sauce
2 cans of Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup (regular cheese soup may be substituted)
1/4 head of broccoli (steamed)
(pour the Cheese soup into a medium size saucepan and warm.  Add in the already steamed broccoli and stir - the broccoli should come apart as seen in the picture above)

Serve of the toppings while they are still warm  - each person can build their own baked potato as they desire. 



  1. Looks yummy! I also DISLIKE my food to touch each other...if I made this I would have to serve it on 4 different plates! :)

  2. What a clever idea to offer different toppings. I'm afraid we're in a rut with baked potatoes at our house. Butter and sour cream for me, giardiniera for the husband. You're motivating me to get more creative!

  3. Four different choices...YUM! My hubby would definitely choose the mushrooms. =)

  4. Wow - awesome ideas! Will definitely have to try this in the kitchen -I think my son would love the broccoli and cheese!

  5. That all looks so yummy it's making my stomach growl. I think the mushrooms and onions would be my favorite though.

  6. I have a bit of an obsession with bacon, so anything with bacon will do the trick for me! That looks delicious! :)

  7. Looks delicious! I'll have to give them a try especially your mushroom topper!

  8. Thanks everyone! - Sounds like the mushroom topping is the favorite.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
