Have you tried this fundraiser for Resident Council?

Set up a baked potato bar for staff, residents and family to enjoy. And sell some yummy comfort food on a cold winter day. Of course, follow infection control procedures according to dietary department protocols.

First, the BEST way to bake a potato.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash, dry and rub russet potatoes with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Place potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, turning occasionally, until tender and easily pierced with a paring knife, 65 to 75 minutes.

  • Vegetarian- Canned chickpeas drained and sautéed with turmeric, cumin & garlic, Greek yogurt
  • Cheeseburger- Ground beef with onion and garlic, shredded cheddar and diced tomato
  • Pepperoni Pizza- Pepperoni, grated mozzarella and grated parmesan
