WFMW - How do you like them potatoes?

Actual photo from last night's dinner. Note grumpy baby in the background!

When we serve baked potatoes (which we do a lot because, hey, they're cheap!) I chop up the potatoes after they're baked and put them on a platter. I then top them and serve.

This lets everyone get as much as they want without waste. Plus, by topping them ahead of time, it curbs the children that consider butter and sour cream to be the main dish! Leftovers heat up great, too.


  1. This is a fantastic idea. I like how you sneak in the broccoli, too :) Is that a cheese sauce on top? Would you share the recipe? It looks yummy! Like you wouldn't even want the sour cream and butter after that!

  2. Those looks delicious!

  3. That's not a grumpy baby in the background...not Mr.H! :)
