Baked Potato Bar

I love “assemble your own meal” meals. Any dish that involves building my dinner on my plate is a winner in my book. I can make it exactly how I want it. I have control issues.

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry your potatoes, and bake them on a cookie sheet for 50-60 minutes, until soft.

While that’s happening, chop up a bunch of veggies! Whatever you have in your fridge will work well. You can’t go wrong!

We had:

  • bell peppers (yellow and green)
  • celery
  • mushrooms
  • onions
  • green onions
  • tomatoes
  • broccoli
  • pepperoni (admittedly, not a veggie, but it needed to be chopped.

For a meat, I used bacon. Cook up 4 strips of bacon, and chop finely. Baked potatoes don’t necessarily need meat-it’s a quick and easy vegetarian dish, as well!

Top off your potato creation with spices (think garlic salt, parsley, basil, oregano, pepper, etc), a healthy dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese.
