This is the time of year when I sometimes crave a good baked potato. When the weather gets cooler, a nice hot baked potato can warm you up and feel like comfort food. Sometimes for dinner I'll put together a baked potato bar with a variety of toppings to satisfy my craving.
Baked Potato Bars can be an inexpensive way to feed a large group, especially if you make it a potato bar potluck affair. The host can provide the potatoes, butter, sour cream and salt and pepper and then ask everyone else to bring a topping. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
It is surprising to me that not everyone loves baked potatoes that well, and especially not with various toppings. Lindsey prefers a sweet potato and has always disapproved of baked potato bars. When I asked her for topping ideas, she suggested butter, salt and pepper. Not really what I was looking for, LOL. Luckily, Maddy and Alicia do enjoy baked potatoes and had plenty of ideas! So, I've compiled a list of ideas that you may not have thought about. Then, if you decide to host a Baked Potato Bar, perhaps you can enclose the list of ideas in your invitation to give your guests some options. I mean, it would be a less exciting event if everyone simply brought cheese.
Did I leave any of your favorite toppings off of the list? Pleas add them in the comments below!
