Baked Potato

"This is a family favorite when we want something quick and easy. We sometimes add coleslaw and garlic butter to the potatoes, and top with grated cheese and sour cream.... whatever creation you like. But this version is a little different to most."

Easy and oh so delicious, I used a low carb potato and only used the sour cream and spring onions which went great with TeresaS's Dijon Fish Fillets. Thanks Tisme for a keeper of a side. Made for Pick Me tag game.
