The Works Baked Potato

Mmmmmm. Simple, but oh so good! The Works baked potatoes remind me of the wonderful potatoes at Hog’s Breath Eatery, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I used to eat at Hog’s Breath regularly. Man, did they have great baked potatoes. Sadly, the Hog’s Breath Eatery has closed. That means I have to make more baked potatoes like this one at home instead of saving up my cravings for the next time I go to Fayetteville.The Works Baked Potato

I have no problem admitting that for me, The Works baked potato makes the perfect main dish. Not a side, nope. Although you could certainly do that. But you grab a big enough baker and load it up, you’ve got a great dinner. There’s nothing fancy going on here, just a good, fast, easy baked potato.

Also try my cheesy broccoli baked potatoes.
