Have you heard of a Baked Potato Party or a Potato Bar? They are really popular at BBQs and birthday parties just like the candy bars at weddings and showers. Either way we are huge fans of potatoes, HUGE. We decided to have our own potato party and by party I mean two of us in front of the television eating as many baked potatoes as we can.
This is probably my favorite part about myfoodieduty, because in all honesty do you really care what we think about the crispiness of fries and sauce to wing ratios? Maybe you do, but we think you want to see our crazy kitchen creations and our fails in the test kitchen. (spoiler alert, we didn’t fail this Sara Super Potato is EPIC)
We baked (in the microwave because we were impatient today) about 4 medium sized potatoes. We had some leftover homemade meatloaf that we reheated, sour cream, sliced jalapeños, Tabasco Sauce, A1 Sauce, and McCormick Salad Toppings. When the potatoes were ready we cut them in half then sliced them so they looked cubed. As you can see from the photo above, that one has a lot of sour cream. The toppings are more to your taste each potato had one serving of meatloaf on it. The meatloaf recipe, potato recipe, and links for potato bars will be below.
Until next time, happy eating!

Mama Foodie Duty’s Meatloaf
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/4 c bread crumbs
1/8 c yellow mustard
1/8 c ketchup
2 T Worcestershire Sauce
pinch garlic powder OR 2 lg garlic cloves chopped finely
1/4 onion chopped finely
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Put all ingredients in a bowl and knead with your hands until all ingredients are combined. Put meatloaf in a loaf pan (if we know we are using if for the potatoes we use a rectangular glass baking dish so the loaf if flatter) and bake in the oven covered with foil for 45 minutes. For the last 15 minutes of cooking remove the foil and cook uncovered. Cooking times may vary.
The Sara Super Potato (originally named for our founder)
Prep time: 5 min to 1 1/2 hours (depends on if you have the meatloaf ready and how you bake the potatoes)
1 medium to large baked potato
3-4 T sliced jalapeños in vinegar
1 serving/slice cooked Mama Foodie Duty’s Meatloaf or Meatloaf of your choice
3-4 heaping T of Sour Cream
1 t A1 Sauce
Tabasco Sauce to taste
McCormick Salad Toppings to taste
After baked, slice your potato in half. Don’t burn yourself, then slice again in the opposite direction making the potato looked cubed. Sprinkle the meatloaf over the potato and feel free to crumble it all over. Next, add the sour cream filling in the spaces between the potato cuts, trust us it’s an art and a science. Now add the A1 Sauce all over and follow it with the Tabasco Sauce. Arrange the jalapeños so that almost every bite will have one and lastly sprinkle the entire potato with the McCormick Salad Toppings. You are ready to enjoy this crazy kitchen creation!
