Author:The Hungry Waitress
4 Idaho potatoes (for 6 halves/servings)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese
1/2 cup bacon, fried and chopped
1 Tablespoon chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rub olive oil and salt all over the outside of the whole potatoes. Bake the potatoes for 1 hour (or until the center is soft.)
Let the potatoes cool. Then cut them into halves. Scoop out the middle of each half into a large mixing bowl. Add the melted butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon, chives, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix everything together to make the filling.
Scoop the filling into the halved potato skins. I make an extra potato so the filling is overflowing (that’s why we made 4 baked potatoes for 6 servings).
Bake again for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Enjoy!
