Feminist Kitchen: Baked Potato Potluck

Feminist Kitchen is a series trying to break down that perception that feminists can't/don't cook. We need to eat to fight the patriarchy, fools.

My friends are mad into lifestyle bloggers, which I don't get, but I'm not usually into reading about stranger's babies and thrifted tables and stuff. ANYWAY, even though I don't understand lifestyle blogs, I do appreciate the recipes they put out. So this weekend my friends did the Baked Potato Bar from Joanna Goddard's blog, which was awesome.

This is literally the easiest potluck ever to do. All you need are potatoes and toppings. REALLY. There is no way to screw this up.
If you are a normal person, much of your life revolves around food. And if you have awesome friends, they probably want to eat all the time and hang out while doing it. So we were all pretty excited about this baked potato idea because baked potatoes are DELICIOUS and the idea of a toppingspalooza delighted us.

Chosen toppings: onions, avocado, beans, havarti cheese, sour cream

This is my friend Julie's potato. She made hers a lot prettier than I made mine.

Then we hung out with meat pillows.

Baked potatoes can be baked in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees OR done in the microwave for 10 minutes.

Toppings can literally be anything. There are suggestions on Joanna's blog, but the ones we had were refried black beans, black beans, onions, cheddar cheese, havarti cheese, carrots, avocado, sour cream, garlic, mac and cheese, and the most exotic of all.... butter.

It was a grand ole time and makes for a super easy and fun potluck, and everyone likes to hang out and eat, so go forth and potato bar!
