I’ve talked before about how the hubby isn’t always a big fan of my attempts at “healthier cooking”. So I’m always on the look out for easy ways to customize a dinner for each of our dietary preferences without having to cook two different things.
One of the easiest ways I’ve found to do this is to set up a DIY baked potato bar. I oven bake a large russet potato for each of us, then put out 8-10 different toppings we can use to dress up our potato.
I go for the healthy options: diced tomatoes, green onions, and salsa. The hubby layers on shredded cheese, bacon, and sour cream.
Some other tasty options for toppings include:
- Ranch dressing (or to be healthier, Ranch Dressing Mix)
- Feta, goat, or blue cheeses
- Mini pepperonis
- Steamed broccoli
- Black beans
- Grilled onions
- Tzatziki sauce
- Buffalo sauce
Any way you dress it up, it’s a simple tasty dinner that can be as healthy as you make it.
