Baked Potatoes with Topping Recipe

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.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 20-23 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the butter, onions, mayonnaise and bacon; set aside. Cut an X in the top of each potato; fluff pulp with a fork. Top each with 3 tablespoons of butter mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 6 servings.

"Excellent recipe, I did bake the potatoes in the oven though because they always shrivel little in the microwave."

"After microwaving potatoes, cut in half, scoop out pulp leaving a thin layer. Mash the pulp with marg. and milk, whipping until smooth. Spoon back in potatoe halves. Then top each potato with 3 tbsp. of butter mixture. Sprinkle with cheese."
