 Helpful Tips:

Setting up your Potato Bar

 

  • Go from left to right, according to where the potatoes are.
  • The basic seasonings and herbs, such as salt and chives, should always be first.
  • Cheeses and other light ingredients should follow next.
  • Meats and vegetables should go last. This is to allow guests to decide if they want the food on the potato or on the side.

Enjoy!!!!
