There isn't much we don't love about baked potatoes. They're hot, comforting, cheap, simple and usually (if we get our way) covered in cheese. Whether we've stayed out a bit too late the night before, waited too long to eat and gotten hangry, or are just in need of some old fashioned comfort, a baked potato recipe is likely the answer.

Since we don't discriminate, we've also included some baked sweet potato recipes. Do not be confused: they are just as delicious covered in cheese, even though they are sweet. If we've left off your favorite baked potato topper/filler, let us know what it is in the comments!
