I have added ground meat, shrimp, or pulled pork to this recipe for a tasty treat while watching your favorite team on TV!

Ingredients:

  • 5 medium to large Yukon Gold or baking potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • ¼ pound bacon
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped green onions
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup hot Half and Half
  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ½ pint sour cream
  • ½ stick butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika
  • Grated cheddar cheese for topping
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish

Directions:

  1. Rub potatoes with oil and bake in 375° oven for 1 hour until small knife blade can be inserted easily; remove and set aside
  2. Into a skillet fry bacon until crisp; remove and set on paper towel
  3. Into the bacon drippings sauté onion and green onions until wilted
  4. In a bowl mix the sauteed vegetables with the cream cheese until thoroughly blended
  5. Split potatoes in half lengthwise, scoop out inside leaving approximately 1/8” wall; add potatoes, 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, sour cream and butter to the cream cheese and vegetables
  6. Slowly add the heated Half & Half mixing continuously; add bacon bits, salt and pepper
  7. Season with salt and pepper the inside shells of the potatoes; stuff potatoes with the mixture; top with grated cheese, bacon, and chives

Serves 6-8

Note: As a meal, small cooked shrimp, ham, sautéed sausage may be added to stuffing mix
