Ways to Fill an Idaho Potato

We never tire of showing off the versatility of the Idaho potato, especially the russet.

For instance, many restaurants serve soup in bread bowls? Not Lucas Forgy of Block and Larder in Denver, Co. He serves the classic French Onion Soup in a perfectly baked potato topped with Fontina cheese and caramelized onions. It tastes and looks delicious – heads will turn when they see this!

We’ve singled out some of our favorite baked potato recipes to give you a few ideas for your menu. They range from king crab legs with gouda, Old Bay and heavy cream to Hasselback potatoes with a truffle crème fraiche topping.
