I didn’t do this in college because I was poor, but these days I’ll add a tablespoon or two of sour cream or cream cheese to the potato.

This makes a great left overs meal. It reheats in the microwave 2-3 minutes. I’ll put a chunk of butter on top of the potatoes to freshen the potatoes when I reheat it.
