Real World Wednesday - Baked Potato Bar

Back in my working days, when I wouldn't get home until 7 at night, I used to make a potato bar for dinner quite often. I hadn't made this in awhile but remembered about it last week when I was short on dinner prep time. It's so easy to pull together, and you mostly use ingredients that you already have on hand.

Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream (I use plain yogurt)
Bacon bits
Flax Seed
Shredded Chicken
anything else you have on hand

Clean the potatoes, poke holes in them with a fork and rub them lightly with olive oil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1-1.5 hours. When finished, let cool and top with desired toppings.

  • This is a great way to get kids involved in meal prep. They'll love choosing their own toppings and making the potatoes to their liking.
