  • Servings: 4


4 Baking Potatoes
½ cup Sour Cream
2 Tbsp Real or Imitation Bacon Pieces
½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Tbsp Chopped Chives
Salt & Pepper, to taste


Wash potatoes thoroughly. Prick with a fork. Bake in 425 degree oven for 40 minutes, or cook in microwave oven according to directions for your microwave, until tender. Cool potatoes slightly to handle. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (if microwave was used.) Cut potatoes in half and scoop out potato, leaving a 1/4-inch shell. Place scooped potato in mixing bowl. Add sour cream and mash scooped potato until smooth. Gently stir in bacon, shredded cheese, chopped chives, and season with salt and pepper. Stuff potatoes. Place potatoes on baking sheet and bake in oven about 15 minutes or until tops begin to brown.
