O.K. There are baked potatos with butter and salt and pepper, baked
potatos with bacon bits, baked potatos with sour cream.
But there must be more! My happiness does not depend upon finding
some innovative ways of making or eating baked potatos but it would help!

Well, you can top them with shredded cheese, chili, salsa, darned near
anything you can think of.

My favorite addition (and it can be low in fat depending on the amount
of cheese) is a mixture of fat free sour cream and gorgonzola cheese.
Sometimes I also add diced green onion tops.

At work one day, I put nothing but lemon-pepper on my baked potato, and
I loved it.

Have you tried Penzey's "Florida Seasoned Pepper"? That stuff is

A baked potato with any meltable cheese on top makes for a nice dinner.

Unless I'm really lazy, I usually saute some onions, garlic, and mushrooms
together (in olive oil) and put that into the potato. Then I add things
like garlic salt, black pepper, paprika, red pepper, (not necessarily all
at once!), chives, butter, sour cream/plain yogurt, grated cheddar. I
recently tried some black olives in this mix and it worked quite well
also. If I'm really ambitious, I steam or boil some broccoli, too. I
imagine that the cheese sauce from macaroni and cheese would work well,
but haven't tried that yet.
Think of it like any other starch that you would add things to (pasta,
rice, etc.) Basically, it's limited by your tastebuds and imagination. ;)

There is a bulletin board which can answer your potato question. The BB can be
