Australia Day Baked Potato Bar

It's hard to believe another Australia Day is upon us.  Where has the year gone!.

When planning your celebrations why not try a Baked Potato Bar.  A nice crunchy baked potato with lashings of toppings is just so good.  This could be a meal in itself or nicely sit beside the BBQ.

For dessert we included a blueberry Pavlova and Chocolate Ripple Cake.  Both very Australia desserts.

We trust you have a wonderful Australia Day.

Enjoy

We kept things pretty simple and just included potato, coleslaw, crispy bacon, butter, cheese and sour cream,  I found the small Australia Day cardboard box's at our local supermarket.

  Keep it simple: Potato, coleslaw, bacon, butter, cheese and sour cream.

We used an Australian Flag (Also from the supermarket) to cover a small side table used for plates and cutlery.

We kept dessert simple with a Chocolate Ripple Cake and a Blueberry Pavlova, both very perfect for Australia Day.  Both desserts can be prepared well in advance.  The Pavlova was made with my all time best Pavlova recipe .

I could not resist some classic Aussie starters of crackers, dips, cabana and vegetable sticks.  An Australia Day staple for decades but much nicer with the Australia Day flags.

Decorate your table and room with lots of flags, bunting and balloons.  I also like to incorporate my large birds into Australia Day parties.
