What You Need To Make A Baked Potato Party

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do want to know what you need to make a baked potato party? I know those parties were really popular years and years ago. Well, with the price of meat and the fact that we can grow our own potatoes, let’s plan a baked potato party! You can use almost everything you have in your pantry, freezer or refrigerator. I love to entertain and this is a pretty inexpensive way to feed your family or friends. Invite your neighbors and have them each bring one thing to put on the baked potatoes. I promise it will be a hit! People need people, friends need friends and neighbors need neighbors. So let’s get started.

I love parties where I can serve food that just about anyone can eat, whether, Diabetic or glucose issues. People can pick and choose what they CAN eat. I love it! I have collected Corelle white bowls to serve food like these: Corelle Winter Frost 6-Pack Bowl, 18-Ounce, White and larger ones like these: Corelle Livingware 2-Quart Serving Bowl, Winter Frost White

Baked Potato Party:

  1. baked potatoes (russets uniform size), either baked in foil or spray with vegetable oil and bake lightly sprinkled with coarse salt
  2. baked sweet potatoes or yams (uniform size)
  3. sour cream
  4. butter
  5. chives
  6. green onions
  7. grated cheese
  8. chili-thick chili is best
  9. cheesy broccoli very thick soup or sauce
  10. salt & pepper
  11. cooked and crumbled bacon
  12. brown sugar
  13. cinnamon
  14. chopped toasted pecans
  15. cheese sauce
  16. chopped ham
  17. taco meat
  18. sauteed mushrooms
  19. grilled onions
  20. chopped avocado or guacamole
  21. barbecue sauce
  22. taco sauce salsa
  23. roasted red peppers
  24. marinara sauce
  25. gravy-I buy the kind in jars, it tastes great
  26. cream of chicken soup diluted slightly
  27. alfredo sauce

Is your mouth watering, yet? Here’s the deal with a baked potato party, you can ask everyone to bring something on the list above. You provide the potatoes and set the table and serve water with ice and lemon. That’s it! All you have to do is decorate the table with something to make the table “pop” with personality! You can use a quart or pint mason jars with flowers or twigs from your yard. It’s all about getting together and talking, you know have a conversation with your neighbors, family or friends.

One thing I started years ago was collecting Corelle white 10-inch plates from Walmart or wherever. I use them instead of spending money on paper plates. These are the ones I have: Corelle 6003893 Winter Frost White 10-Inch Plate (4). I bought one or two plates every time I went to Walmart or whatever store once a month. I have 32 plates and use them whenever I entertain. They are white and go with just about every tablecloth, charger or placemat. Please have fun with your neighbors and friends.  Life is good when friends get together, I promise.

    How timely of you to mention this! *BG* I took some black bean and elk chili I had made to work last night and we had left over bakers from the restaurant. We filled them with chili, cheese, freshly made salsa, and sour cream. Yummy!
    I made Olivier Salad last week, too, and I thought of you. I gave you the link to Inessa’s blog not too long ago, but was concentrating on desserts. She has a classic recipe for Olivier Salad. It’s basically a potato salad with extra vegies and meat. I usually make mine with diced ham. I actually make it as a meal, rather than as a side. Another great salad is Vinegret, if you like beets. Basically, replace the meat in the Olivier Salad with cooked diced beets and you’ve got Vinegret. Some people add sauerkraut. I’ve made it both ways and like both.
    Have a great day, Linda! Hugs, Mare

    This is right up my alley. I love baked potatoes, so much so, that I think my son might have been switched at birth. He dislikes potatoes in every form. How that happened, I’ll never know, His sister’s, kids, nieces, all are normal, they love them. When we add chlsa, and the list goes on. ili, we also add sauerkraut, relish, Broccoli, cauliflower, and cheese are standard toppings for our potatoes. You have just given us a few new things to try. Thank you.

    We make baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, green onions, steamed broccoli and chopped chicken for a main dish. You can also use just good old salsa if you are watching the calories.

      Hi, Carol, I could have salsa every day of the week! I swear I have a little Mexican in my DNA! I have a bean burrito every day! I feel like having a baked potato party again and I will add salsa to my list! Thank you! Linda
