Raise your hand if you LOVE potatoes!

ME! If you don’t like them, I suggest you step away now. This recipe is all about potatoes. Nothing more. Nothing Less. Okay, and maybe some cheese and green onions. But that’s it!

These mouthwatering potatoes are super easy to make and can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Serve them as a side with eggs and bacon in the morning, on the side of any lunch or dinner dish, or even eat em like that! They are soft and cream on the inside and nice and crispy on the edges.

You know how I share a ton of quick and easy recipes on the blog but as of today,  this recipe is one of the easiest EVER. It doesn’t get much easier than these baked potatoes.
