One of our favorites any time of the year!

One of the meals that gets the most "Yay"'s and "Yes"'s in our house right now is the very easy Baked Potato Bar!

No big deal. Grab a bag of baking potatoes, sour cream, bacon bits, and grated cheese...and you are ready for an easy and pleasing meal. Add a salad on the side and you get your vegies too!
This time of the year, it seems there is always more to do than time to do it in. Christmas concerts, volunteering, holiday parties, shopping, wrapping, the ongoing sports practice and homework...and so much more. Cook up some potatoes before hand, stick them in the crisper, and if someone has to run out for an event...offer them a potato and some fixings. Just watch out 'cause chances are, everyone else will want one too!
Enjoy the hustle and bustle....and take it all in!
It's Christmas!  


  1. Are the potatoes saran wrapped in the picture? Does each person just nuke them? This is a great idea. I will have to try it.

  2. Great idea! Looks yum! I saw on pinterest that you can cook them in the crock pot (wrapped in foil)...

  3. Yummy! I did this for a birthday party and it was a huge hit. Can I come eat at your house soon? I love baked potatoes!

  4. what a great idea! we seem to be eating out constantly now w/all the activities going on. Sadly, my kids won't eat them. I've been eating a bunch of sweet potatoes though. Wonder how they'd taste w/"fixins." :)

  5. mmmmm ... yum! i shouldn't be blog-cruising on an empty stomach ;-)

  6. Oh we loved baked potatoes!!!
    Perfect fun and easy dinner!
    have a happy night
