Charcuterie style boards are my new favorite thing, especially during quarantine. We are eating in more and they are an easy and fun way to feed the whole family and offer lots of options.
Since today is Superbowl Sunday and I wanted a fast meal idea for my kids and I, I created this Loaded Baked Potato Board. It was a hit and we ate just about everything on the board! Scroll down for my favorite recipe for baked potatoes and all the topping ideas to create your own Ultimate Loaded Baked Potato Board at home.
Loaded Baked Potato Board

For the potatoes:

Poke a few holes in each cleaned potato then rub all over with olive oil and sprinkle on all sides with sea salt.
Bake at 425 degrees for 60 minutes on a lined baking sheet. Let cool slightly then cut open in the center and fluff potatoes with a fork.
While the potatoes bake, prep all toppings. I used precooked bacon and just heat and chop.
I also cheated this time (Mom life) and bought a large chili from Wendy’s!
Also shred your cheese (I like to have two varieties like cheddar and blue or goat cheese), and cut up any other cooked meat you want to serve.
I chose turkey lunchmeat but diced chicken is also a tasty option along with pepperoni and sausage.
How gorgeous is this spinning charcuterie board my husband made for me?
I love it and it was the perfect size for my loaded potato board!
Add warm potatoes to the center of your serving board.
Add toppings in bowls around the potatoes.
Be sure to add mini serving spoons and spreaders. I also like to add seasonings either beside the board or in little bowls.
Serve warm and dig in!
That looks really delicious.
Thanks for this amazing recipe.
I like how easy to make this aside from that it looks really delicious. My husband loves it and I am going to this for him today. YUM!
Oh this looks so yummy!
I was just thinking about making baked potatoes! This has inspired me to do it!
I love baked potatoes! I will definitely try some of the toppings. Thank you for this.
