I'm hosting a little get together this weekend. The menu with be a large baked ham, whole roasted cauliflower with beer cheese sauce, baked beans, baked potato bar. The green sides will be supplied by friends.
I will bake the beans most of the day and the ham for several hours at low heat before glazing and cranking the heat. The cauliflower and ham will be roasted at 450 for the last 30 minutes before serving.
Can I bake the potatoes at 350 earlier in the day and pop in the oven for 15 minutes at 450 to warm or will that compromise the texture of the potato? Does anyone have any experience with baked potatoes for a crowd? I love when baked potatoes are hot and fluffy from the oven, but not such a fan of the texture of cooled and reheated potatoes that you can sometimes get at a lacklustre steak house.
Any hints would be appreciated!!
