Who doesn’t love baked potatoes? But they can get boring after a while if you use the same toppings like butter and sour cream. There are so many other toppings that can really elevate a baked potato and these are some of our go-tos.

Cheddar Cheese

Everything tastes so much better with melted cheese and you can make cheesy potatoes even more exciting by adding peppered bacon, sour cream, and green onions.

Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato

Transform a baked potato into your favorite sandwich by adding crumbled bacon, cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and a creamy buttermilk dressing.


Can you ever have too much guacamole—we don’t think so! Top your baked potatoes with guacamole and you can even add pico de gallo for some extra taste.


Next time you want to switch up your breakfast, try piling eggs and bacon on top of your baked potato and then returning it to the oven.

Greek Yogurt

For a similar taste to sour cream but with fewer calories and less fat, try topping your baked potato with Greek yogurt.
