Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 4 Tbsp. real butter, cut into chunks
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 8 pieces bacon (or turkey bacon), cooked crisp and crumbled
  • grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry potatoes. Rub them lightly with a bit of shortening or vegetable oil (helps crisp the skin) and place directly on oven rack, or a cookie sheet. Bake for one hour or until potatoes are done.
  2. Remove potatoes and let cool just a bit. Cut an opening on the top and hollow out each potato, OR cut each potato in half (as shown in photos) to make 8 servings. You may want to hold them with a potholder as they will still be hot!
  3. Scoop out the insides and place in a bowl. Mash, and add butter, sour cream, bleu cheese, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic. Beat with a hand mixer or stir with a wooden spoon until fluffy. Carefully spoon mixture back into potato shells. Place in a baking dish.
  4. Return to hot oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle bacon and cheddar cheese over each potato. Bake an additional 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly
