Baked Potato Bar
Candy recently mentioned how fun a baked potato party would be. What a great idea! This works very well especially for a large crowd. It can accomodate a variety of needs, for example meat eaters and vegans, dairy free, gluten free, etc.
Scrub clean and dry as many Russet potatoes as needed. On individual squares of foil, rub potato with olive oil and season with kosher salt and fresh pepper or Alfies seasoning and wrap.
In preheated 375F. oven bake potatoes until cooked, about 1 1/2 hours, turning potatoes over half way through.
For the "bar" there can either be a theme, for example, Italian, Mexican, roasted vegetables, etc. or just a variety of everyones favorite toppings.
Butter, garlic butter, herb butter, different kinds of cheese, including herb cheese, etc
Meats, chicken, chili, smoked salmon, bacon, ground beef with taco seasoning, etc
Roasted vegetables, roasted garlic, green onions, peppers, jalapenos, corn, mushrooms, etc
Creams and sauces, BBQ sauce, cheese sauce, ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, sour cream, guacamole, etc
I wish I had taken a photo of the bar, but you get the idea. We round out the meal with a salad and dessert and had very unique, one of a kind creations!
