How do you bake potatoes for a potato bar?

There are so many options for making the potatoes for the potato bar. In the recipe, I talk about making the potatoes in the slow cooker, which is my favorite way. Check out that for the directions. Or you can roast the potato, or cook them in the instant pot.

To Roast Potatoes:

  1. Pierce about 8 holes in the potato.
  2. Bake in a preheated oven at 400ºF for 50-60 minutes, until cooked through

To Cook in the Instant Pot:

  1. Pierce about 8 holes in the potato and place on a steaming rack and put 1 cup water in the bottom of the Instant Pot liner.
  2. Cook whole potatoes on high pressure for 12 minutes, with a 10 minute natural pressure release.
