Baked Potato Bar
The tricky part for me on this is baking the potatoes. I decided that I could bake the potatoes when I was home in the early morning and hold them in a crockpot until dinner. Then, I wondered why I even put them in the oven at all. So, after just about 10 minutes of potatoes in the oven I threw them all in the crockpot (dry) and put the setting on low. It worked out great! I'll do that again for sure but probably leaving the potatoes in the slowcooker the entire time. That was the experiment portion of this dinner.
For potato toppings this time I used:
If I were a bit more scheduled about meals I would probably put this into a regular rotation. This would be a great way to use up chili, pulled pork, chicken, etc.
