Sides Worth Sampling: Sunny's Loaded Mashed Potato Bar
Sunny shows you how to make and serve a fun and festive loaded mashed potato bar for your next holiday gathering!
Mashed potatoes are a classic holiday side dish, but Sunny is taking it to the next level this year with her loaded mashed potato bar! This bar is the perfect way to make your side the star of the show! With a delicious serving of mashed potatoes and endless toppings, your guests will be talking about their customized mashed potatoes all night.
First, whip up a batch of mashed potatoes using your favorite recipe. Keep the mashed potatoes warm in a Dutch oven or slow cooker. You can even use an insulated ice container if you're having an outdoor holiday party! Sunny used a covered ice bucket to really bring the bar vibes.
Set up this mashed potato bar on your serving table. Keep your gravy warm in an insulated container right next to the mashed potatoes. Then, place a variety of delicious toppings into individual serving bowls with serving spoons. Sunny's must-have toppings include: sliced scallions, thick-cut bacon, grated Parmesan, a blend of Cheddar and Colby cheeses, a few bottles of her favorite hot sauces and potato chips for the ultimate crunch.
Serve in martini glasses so your guests can personalize their favorite mashed potato combination. The potato possibilities are endless this holiday season with Sunny's loaded mashed potato bar.
