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!

EPIC Baked Potato Dinner Board

For now, here are the details for the EPIC Baked Potato Board and the different sizes of large boards, if you’re looking to use this idea for a large party!

Oh, and it’s fun for a smaller dinner party, or just for dinner tonight with the family (size the board to your needs).

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!

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