Baked Potatoes with Topping

 Baked Potatoes with Topping
In Defuniak Springs, Florida, Alice DePauw jazzes up baked potatoes with this rich topping. “It’s easy, fast and everyone really enjoys it,” she notes. “It makes potatoes a little more special. For added zip, I use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise.”
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.


  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • and bacon; set aside. Cut an X in the top of each potato; fluff pulp
