I make these all the time with various alterations to accompany the main dish the best. I start with this basic recipe but consider mashing the cheese INTO the potato as well as on top. You will have that flavor baked in throughout the potatoe. Also, consider changing cheese. Cheddar is always good, but change it up. I like to use Monterey Jack, and sometimes combine both. Alternatives, as in mashed potatoes are cream cheese or sour cream. I like both and alter to whatever I have on hand, and sometimes light cream. Garlic powder is a nice alternative. And of course, bacon bits and/or chives. Lastly, I always sprinkle Paprika on top before I bake. YUM. Note: baked potatoes do take a long time, you can cut it by nuking your patatoes for a few mins before baking. NOT TOO LONG! A couple minutes is all you need. I always do this. They come out fantastic and the potato texture isn't sacrificed.
