fta A medium sized potato has about 110 calories per serving and is a better source of potassium than a banana (620 g versus 450 g). Also it contains about half of a person's daily requirement of vitamin C and has no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

And prepared properly, a potato will provide your entire daily requirement of sour cream and bacon.

Just don't base your entire population's food supply on the potato.

Or you'll soon be eating babies, as the Irish found out.

I like microwaving a potato, then slicing it like a hot dog bun and putting in sliced turkey (also heated), then covered with black pepper.  Tasty and it helped me lose weight.

This is the reason why I don't pay attention to food trends.  In another few years carbs will be good for you again too.
Eat everything in moderation.  Choose quality over quantity.  Exercise.
Hard as that is, it's often for people to do that telling them to stop eating their favorite foods forever.

Me too, and I like to wash it down with a big glass of flour because it's not nearly as dry as the turkato you describe.

Well, when you put it that way, give me a large bacon and sour cream sammich, hold the potato.

Oh, remember to poke holes in the potato with a fork before you microwave it.  I usually cook it for 5 minutes, then let it cool for a few.

Mashed potatoes (with the skin) made with whole milk and egg has all the nutritional requirements you need. Not kidding.

The trick to In-N-Out fries is to ask for them extra crispy. They double fry them so they stay good longer. Their fries are good but you have to eat them immediately unless you get them crispy.

I got some of that Crystal Head vodak -- some friends brought some duty-free back from Cozumel.  Super smooth.  You can mix a scary strong drink with it and not even know you added any alcohol.  And I like the bottle, too.  Got it on a shelf in the office.
 
2013-05-25 10:57:02 AM  
Take your potato, poke holes in all sides,
roll in a mix of olive oil and sea salt to get a LIGHT coating
bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes (lay the potato on the rack itself and not a pan or dish, although ya might want to place a pan below the rack to catch any drips)
at the end of 25 minutes flip the potato then bake for a further 25 minutes
while the potato bakes sautee finely chopped onions and fresh garlic to taste make sure you use extra butter
when the potato is done place it on a cooking platter, cut it longways, pour in the onion butter mix, top with shredded cheese and place back in oven until the cheese melts and just begins to brown.
remove from oven, top with chives, bacon bits and sour cream to taste

I do like your picture and I also support your right to hold that opinion but the arsonist up there is correct.  Sweet potatoes are terrible.  They taste like clown poop.

"Well done" fries.

Depends on the In N Out, also. Some already fry them a bit more than others... at least, that's my perception.  I think the one near Pismo does that.  The one near my house, less so & the Well Done is better.
