With football season fast approaching, it’s time to flip through your recipe box for food to feed a crowd of hungry fans! This build-your-own baked potato grazing board is a game changer that offers every person at the tailgate all the fixings they could ever imagine to customize their own creation!

Baked Potato Board

Heinen’s offers traditional Yukon Gold baked potatoes, along with their sweet potato counterpart. Choosing the traditional route is delicious, but involves the tedious tasks of peeling and boiling. Purchasing potatoes that are pre-wrapped in plastic is an equally delicious alternative that saves so much precious time.

In the potato and onion section of your local Heinen’s Produce Department, you’ll find the potatoes wrapped in a plastic film. Simply follow the easy-to-read instructions on the label and put the potato (plastic and all) right into your microwave. Cook on high for 6-8 minutes for one, or cook up to four potatoes at once and double the cook time.

Once fully cooked, let the potatoes rest in the wrapper for about 5-10 minutes before removing the plastic, then arrange them on a platter along with traditional and non-traditional toppings.

Loaded Baked Potato

If you want to get ahead of the game, simply microwave the potatoes, remove the plastic and wrap them in tin foil to keep them warm. Assemble the potatoes around the grazing board in their foil warmers, or place them in a bowl in the center of the platter to retain as much heat as possible.

This is such a fun way to feed guests. They can serve themselves a half or whole potato and load them up with whatever toppings they crave.

The Bite Size Pantry, Lauren Schulte
By Lauren Schulte
Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
