These stuffed potatoes are wonderfully fluffy, creamy, and with just the right bite from the blue cheese and bacon. Loaded with flavor! Not a blue cheese fan? Substitute with your favorite cheddar or jack cheese. Enjoy!

How to Make STUFFED POTATOES WITH BLUE CHEESE AND BACON

Step-by-Step

  1. BAKE THE POTATOES:
    Wash the potatoes, dry them, and then rub then with oil. Prick holes with a fork to let steam escape. Bake at 400 for one hour. Cut potatoes lengthwise. Use a tea towel to hold the hot potato, and scoop out the inside of the potato with a spoon into a medium mixing bowl. Take care not to tear the potato skins.
  2. PREPARE THE FILLING:
    Add sour cream, onion, parsley, blue cheese, butter, salt and pepper and mix with a hand mixer, adding as much milk as necessary to make the potato mixture creamy but firm. Now fill the potato shells, using the tines of a fork to fluff up the potatoes. Place all the potatoes on a baking sheet and put them in the hot oven for 15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with the crumbled bacon and serve. Enjoy!
  3. COOK'S TIP:
    Tastes do differ! You may enjoy more sour cream, or a different type of cheese, don't be afraid to change this one to suit your taste.
