Winter is all about making root vegetables fun, and we have bulk bags of white potatoes as well as russets to help with the cause. Heat your oven to 450 degrees and poke some holes into your potatoes so they don’t explode. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for about 20-25 minutes. Take them out and brush them with some butter or olive oil and coat them with salt and pepper. Place them back in the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes more. Check them by giving them a little squeeze to see if they’re soft in the middle. While they’re cooking, prepare your toppings. If you’re entertaining a meat-eating crowd, cook up some bacon, chopped chicken or ground meat. Put out some bowls of butter, sour cream (or whole yogurt is a great substitute), shredded cheese and/ or farmers cheese for the dairy lovers. If there are some vegan folks, try olive oil, salt blends, pepitas or some roasted vegetables. Make it fun, and most of all, enjoy your unique creation!
