Stuffed Baked Potatoes
Bake the potato 5 – 12 min (of course different methods time differently). I do mine in the microwave..and this is a huge potato likely took about 15min or so turning 3 or 4 times through out.
Take care scooping out the flesh of the potato(I usually use a butter knife to insert a cut all the way around the half potato, then it scoops out easily and you are far more likely not to rip the skin(but if you do ..don’t worry we can fix
Then here comes the fun part, scoop out most of the potato into a bowl, add a tablespoon of butter, at least 1 cup of shredded cheese…and then what ever your favorites are. I simply added a couple slices of bacon chopped with a little pepper and a dash of kosher salt. I have added any combination of the following sauteed onions,mushrooms,garlic chopped broccoli,cauliflower,shredded carrot Although I have never done it..you could easily top it of with cooked chicken,beef,pork or hamburger for a never ending variation every time you make them. mix with fork
Get everything ready and mix with fork then stuff each shell
With a big spoon scoop into shells(If you did rip them when scooping out the flesh don’t worry…just hold in your hand while you fill and it holds very well!
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350…if the potato is still warm when you put together it may not take that long.
As you can see by my hand ..these things are HUGE!
Ok..This is one of my favorite Parts..the finished product..all ready to eat! Stuffed Baked Potatoes Served up Hot with a scoop of sour cream (and I made short work of it as you will see 🙂
