Lent Recipe: Hot Potato Bar

What’s not to like about a crispy baked potato with cheese, sour cream, scallions and bacon?! Potatoes take about an hour to cook so we recommend 1 CG member prebake them ahead of time. 

Hot Potato Bar

Feeds 12

Ingredients:
1 med-large potato per person (Russet or Yukon Gold are best)
bacon, cooked
sour cream
1 bunch scallions and/or chives, chopped
shredded cheese
veg options: steamed broccoli, red and green bell peppers, fried onions and/or mushrooms
optional: baked beans, jalapenos, hot sauce

Directions: 
Cover the potatoes with olive oil and a little salt and pepper.  Prick each potato with a fork in several spots and place on a foil lined baking sheet.   Bake at 425°F  for approximately 50 min. Flip each potato every 20 minutes or so.  To check whether the potatoes are done cooking, see if you can easily insert a fork into their center.  If you can, they are done!  Set up your hot potato bar with all the toppings and let each person customize their spud.
