Baked Potato Bar

Do you have some potatoes sitting in your kitchen and need to make something for dinner? Look no further than your pantry to create this simple, yet tasty dinner.

Baked Potato Bar


  • 1 large Russet Potato, per person 
  • Broccoli florets
  • Chili (I used Hormel Chili 98% fat-free turkey with beans)
  • Sour Cream
  • Bacon
  • Butter (I used Trader Joe's Garlic & Herb)
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub and dry potatoes. Pierce potatoes with a fork 6-8 times. Liberally rub olive oil on each potato & add salt. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes. (This site was very helpful)

Cook bacon until crispy. Crumble into small pieces. Heat up the chili in a sauce pan. Steam the broccoli for about 5-6 minutes.

Cut into each potato and season how you choose. Enjoy!

I wish we had potatoes sitting on our counter. I'm the only big potato eater in our family, so it is rare that we have it. That looks so good...need to add potatoes onto the shopping list. :)
