Baked Potato Buffet/ Feasting in Fellowship Fridays

A “Baked Potato Buffet” is such a simple yet delicious side to make for your family dinner or for a large crowd. You can prepare all of your “dressings” ahead of time and keep your potatoes warm by wrapping in foil….giving you more time to prepare you main course. 

Baked Potato Buffet
(recipe may be multiplied)
4 Idaho Potatoes
4 tsp olive oil
coarse salt
Toppings on the side as desired (shown is butter, sour cream, bacon, and cheddar cheese)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce potatoes with a fork on the top and bottom of each potato. Rub with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in oven for 1 hour until fork penetrates easily. If making ahead you may wrap in foil to keep warm. 
*For microwave directions, wash and pierce potatoes and place on a plate. Microwave on high for 8 mins until tender. You will not have the nice consistency that you would in the oven, but it will still work!

    Thanks for hosting Janelle! I love these link ups. I always find such great ideas.

  3. Ok, so I am a potato fanatic! I love potatoes of every kind so when I saw this post, I thought great idea!! I am hosting a study group in a few weeks, and while usually we do a pot luck type, I think I am going to do this instead. I think I'll offer ham, chili, broccoli, etc for toppings and making it the main course! It will be easy to eat and easy clean up! Thanks so much for the great idea!!
