Hm, I guess I'll have to start eating the skin. Then again, baked potatoes are few and far between for me...I'll take 'em mashed any day!

Better still, bake the garlic and the spud seperately!

Salt and pepper. Butter and Sour Cream
but the best topping is whatever gravy or sauce is left on the plate.

I'm going to be That Guy and chide you (chive you!) for not including "Other" as an option, because for me, it depends. If the potato has been rubbed with butter before baking, and baked naked, without any covering, to let the skin and outer layer of the potato become a single entity that I call "My Deliccccccious!", then yes, I eat the skins. Otherwise, I just don't find that they're worth it.

The best baked potato I ever had was in a little inn in England, so it was a "jacket potato." It had a sharp cheddar, finely grated, and finely grated apple that could stand up to the cheddar. The skin was good and crispy.

Best. Potato. Ever.

Actually, when we make them, we buy large Russets, which are good for baking. Then we do the Alton Brown method. All you need is a potato, Kosher salt, and some oil. Om nom. Well, you could also add some sharp cheddar and some apple, if they're shredded finely.

Humus and spices. This must include at least salt, oregano, crushed red pepper and garlic. I do also do cheese in lieu of humus.
