Baked Potatoes can be served as an appetizer or a side dish with some main dish or even as an evening snack when kids are hungry.
My kids love these potatoes and demand that these be served as a snack rather than with main meal so that they can enjoy these more.
These are really easy to make and can be made healthier by adding more vegetables to it. Or you can make these more kid friendly by adding more cheese to the recipe 😉 My kids will eat almost anything if I add Cheese to it. Well, Almost;-)
If you are planning to serve these as an appetizer it is better to choose small potatoes so that guests can pick one piece easily though it will be a little difficult to scoop out from small potatoes.
