Baked potatoes are an easy and fun way to shake up the boring lunch routine.

Here’s how to do it!

1. Reheat baked potato in the microwave until warm. (about 45-60 seconds)

After reheated, top with some warm toppings such as cheese and bacon.

2. Place potato in a metal lunch box or large thermos, and wrap with a kitchen towel to help hold in the heat (if packing in a metal container).

3. Pack inside lunch bag with any additional “cold” toppings such as sour cream, tomatoes or chives.

Some other fun toppings to try: broccoli, ranch, chicken, corn or olives.
