Friends, earlier this week I shared a simple recipe, Baked Russet Potatoes Recipe. Easy weeknight dinner, right? Fully loaded or keep deconstructed with a pat of butter, everybody gets to make their own potato.

Baked Potato Dinner Board

Just like the old-fashioned baked potato bars that our Mom’s made. You’ll get dinner on the table in no time, and you’ll spend minimal time cleaning up once the meal is done, which is what I love about a “baked potato charcuterie board.” Grab THE BIG BOARD info below for 7 epic sizes.

This baked potato dinner board is the coziest dinner board around! You may have also tried my popular Epic Chili Dinner Board or Epic Taco Dinner Board. WOW. They are all fun and cozy for a casual meal to serve to family or friends.

This is what I love about serving a potato board, everyone builds their own potato.

How to build a potato board

For now, I love this illustration that my friend Jeannine made for me. Makes me want to dive right in! So many options how to serve a board, too. We also recommend you put the potatos on a large serving plate in the center of the board, and build around it.

Here are the fixin’s we’ll be putting on ours.

Ingredients for baked potato board:

All about the boards

Since I’ve started sharing boards over the last three years, 99% of my recipes and ideas have been on a board with a small 1-2 inch lip.

The reason being, with all the entertaining that we have done, the other boards just don’t make sense.

THE FOOD FALLS OFF, right? Am I the only one that has had this happen? I don’t even look for boards anymore unless they making serving easy! Grab my new EPIC size board info at the bottom of this post!

How do you keep the food warm?

It’s simple, I prepare the board with all the toppings without the baked potatoes. Plan ahead by making room for them first. Right before you serve, place the hot potatoes on the board!

In other words, I always keep hot food in the oven until right before serving! Easy!

On my new boards, place all the hot potatoes on a large plate. You can arrange it differently than these photos, with the potatoes in the center, and toppings surrounding it.

TIP: Each guest can slice their own potato before stuffing, to keep them nice and hot.

Friday night potato board

It’s Friday night? If you’re looking in the fridge and wondering what to serve with baked potatoes, I have you covered. Baked potatoes are such an easy and incredible side, or a main dish. Remember to use my method of baking the potato, so the skin is slightly crisp and salty, with fluffy, buttery insides. Perfection!
