Homemade chives and sour cream dip on a baked potato with steamed broccoli and cheese.

Sometimes a baked potato is very bla and not very tasty even with salt, pepper, and butter.

I’ve just added some new chives plants to the vegetable garden and they needed a trim. Of course, there was all ready sour cream in the fridge so it was a natural combination!

I used kitchen scissors to harvest the chives.

Baked potato in aluminum foil:

Preheat the oven on 425f. Using a fork, pole holes around the potato. You may rub them with olive oil and salt and pepper.

Wrap in aluminum foil. Place on lower rack of oven. The aluminum foil produces a moist skinned, baked potato.

Bake for about 45 minutes to one hour or until cooked through. You can test for doneness by poking it with a fork or pinching the potato. Its it is soft its ready!

Top with the chive sour cream dip and more chives, salt and pepper.

I also steamed broccoli in the microwave for about five minutes and sprinkled with cheese while hot.

Enjoy!

  5. I am thinking I should grow some chives. Those are great photos from an Iphone. I have an older one and the pictures are not as good.

  6. I have chives, as well. I bought seeds 7 year ago and none since! I like the flowers, so they reseed with vigor. I have a poppy seed coleslaw that I use mine in.
