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.
