Is there anything better than a stuffed potato? I'm going to say no. Stuffed potatoes (of both the white and sweet variety) have long been one of my favorite comfort foods. From the uber-popular sausage and kale stuffed sweet potatoes from my first book, to this BBQ bacon burger stuffed potato, or even my go-to lunch order of a brisket stuffed potato from our local BBQ place, one of my favorite things about baked potatoes is all the ways you can dress it up! That's why I love the concept of this baked potato bar: everyone can dress up their potatoes however they like, and they get the opportunity to try out a few new topping possibilities they may not have thought of before.

To make a baked potato bar, all you'll need to do is bake up some potatoes and set out your favorite toppings. If you're setting up a baked potato bar for a party, you can keep the potatoes warm by placing them in a slow cooker on the warm setting, so that everyone can grab a potato whenever you're ready. With St. Patrick's Day coming up, we decided to put an Irish spin on our toppings by featuring corned beef and sauerkraut! Here are a few ideas for topping your own baked potato bar:

Whatever toppings you choose, your baked potato bar is sure to be a hit! We hope you love it as much as we do.
