  • 5 baked potatoes about 2 lbs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese grated
  • 10 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh chives optional


  • Cut warm baked potatoes in half. Scoop out soft centers of potatoes into a large bowl, leaving a skinny wall of potato all the way around. Place potato skins on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • Mash potato with butter, sour cream, cream cheese, 1 cup of grated cheese, and 3/4 of the crumbled bacon. If it seems too dry, add in a splash of milk. Add in salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Spoon or pipe mashed potato into shells, top with remaining cheese and bacon. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until warmed through and melty.
  • Top with chives and serve warm.
