The potato is probably one of the most versatile food items available to us. It can be mashed, smashed, fried, sliced, scalloped, the list goes on and on. To keep things simple, whether for a casual dinner with friends or a fun meal for the kids, a potato in its simply baked state is a meal in and of itself.

A build your own baked potato bar is not only a simple and delicious dinner, it’s also a fun way for kids to make a weeknight meal for themselves. Think of it like you would a build your own ice cream sundae bar, just substitute savory for the sweet.
