Ingredients

  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 8 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 563 calories, 25 g fat (15 g saturated fat), 104 mg cholesterol, 607 mg sodium, 70 g carbohydrate, 6 g fiber, 16 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Scrub and pierce potatoes; rub each with 1 teaspoon butter. Place on a baking sheet. Bake 45-50 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In drippings, saute onion until tender; set aside.
  3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each and discard. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a small bowl, mash pulp with remaining butter. Stir in milk, egg, salt and pepper. Stir in the cheese, bacon and onion.
  4. Spoon into the potato shells. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.

MY REVIEW

"I was looking for something different to make for dinner, so I made smaller versions of this recipe. They were a huge hit! The recipe instructions are easy to follow, although I admit to "tweaking" the recipe slightly with the addition of onion chives. Thanks for the great recipe idea."
