|BAKED POTATO BAR|
We did a baked potato bar at the church the other night,
thanks to new friend Maddie
who wanted to work at the church with us.
The potatoes were on sale and I hoped with extra hand to help,
we could get them all scrubbed and baked within 4 hours.
We did the meat sauces in advance to save time.
For those who wanted to top their
potatoes with meat, we offered
Grilled Chicken in Alfredo Sauce, Beef Chili &
Shredded BBQ Chicken--shown above.
We offered cheeses, broccoli, bacon bits, onions, tomatoes,
corn, beans, sour cream, ranch dressing, butter, chives, etc...
for other toppings.
Baked Potatoes for a Crowd
Scrub Potatoes. Wipe dry.
Poke a fork into each potato, 4-8 times.
Roll into olive oil.
Sprinkle with Italian or Pizza Spice
(Maddie's suggestion & we liked it!)
Place on foil-lined baking sheets.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes,
turn potatoes and then continue
to bake another 30 minutes or until potato
feels soft inside, but crisp on the outside.
We did 60 pounds for 100 people. We had plenty.
Easy Shredded BBQ Chicken
3 pounds of raw chicken breasts or tenderloins
8 ounces chicken broth
1-2 cups of BBQ sauce, to your liking
Cook chicken and broth in 5 or 6 quart slow cooker
for 4-6 hours. When fully cooked,
shred with forks and add BBQ sauce.
Heat through for about an hour and serve.
