Baked Potatoes with Topping Recipe

Baked Potatoes with Topping Recipe

In Defuniak Springs, Florida, Alice DePauw jazzes up baked potatoes with this rich topping. “It’s easy, fast and everyone really enjoys it,” she notes. “It makes potatoes a little more special. For added zip, I use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise.”

Ingredients

  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 6 green onions, sliced
