Cheddar Twice-Baked Potatoes Recipe

Our family rarely have her steak without these easy-to-fix potatoes. They're creamy and full of bacon, cheese and onion flavor. —Heather Ahrens Columbus, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

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
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

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.

"I added the milk and as soon as I started stirring it in I knew it was too much. I thought they needed more body and flavor. It may be as simple as substituting sour cream for the milk."

"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."

"My boyfriend and I made these potatoes for Valentines Day. They were delicious, and they were overflowing with the stuffing! Also, I left out the onions, because we don't like them. I will be making them again, but probably only on a special occasion."

"I made these over 2 years ago and the family loved them. I prefer finely sliced green onion instead of the yellow onion sauted in bacon fat. You get the good taste of the onion without the extra fat of the bacon grease."
