You're welcome!!

Another great thing about baked pototoes with toppings is that it's a really economical & nutritious meal in a pinch.

Around the holidays I had some leftover "turkey a la king", as well as some leftover "turkey chili" & chopped broccoli in cheddar cheese sauce. Also had on hand sour cream, crumbled turkey bacon, etc., etc. Picked up a couple of super size Idaho's, baked them, & hubby & I had a fabulous meal that cost pennies, took very little time to throw together, & didn't taste "left over" at all!

I like blue cheese dressing on baked potatoes. YUM!! If I were doing the bar, I'd add everything that Breezy has plus salad dressings. Ranch, blue cheese, ones like that.

As far as cheese sauces go, I'm all for the cheddar/Velveeta combo. You could divide it and do one mild and one with some salsa added for a little kick.

Last night several friends and I went out to a local Steakhouse for steaks. The waitress told everyone that the meal came with the usual salad and baked potato which we all ordered - all except one. She wanted another kind of potato because she couldn't stand the taste and texture of baked. Well, that was a first for all of us. Never heard that before. So put her on your list of "who doesn't like baked potatoes."

i'd say cut out velveeta, go with extra shap cheddar or cabot's seriously sharp with your bechamel, a few dashes of frank's, & you've got a yummy cheese sauce!!

I'm with Alix on the Velveeta+cheddar+white sauce. That's the best, IMHO.

This is what I did, but I also added some Monterey Jack.

We did a potato bar at work for a reception once; it included most of Breezy's toppings, plus BBQ'd pork. Deelish!
