ℹ️ How to Set up a Baked Potato Bar

  1. Make the potatoes: You can make slow cooker baked potatoes, Instant Pot baked potatoes, or even air fryer baked potatoes if you like crispier skin. You could even switch things up and make an Instant Pot Potato Soup instead!
  2. Prepare your toppings: Depending on which topping ideas you choose, you can place them in small bowls and bottles. I like to use a variety of sizes to make the display interesting.
  3. Assemble the bar: You can assemble your bar on a large tray, a cookie sheet, or right on the counter. I suggest placing the potatoes in the middle first, then arranging the bowls of toppings around it. A little fresh greenery (parsley is great!) is a nice element to add too.
