Cheesy Stuffed Baked Potatoes Recipe

These special potatoes are a hit with my whole family, from the smallest grandchild on up. I prepare them up to a week in advance, wrap them well and freeze. Their flavorful filling goes so nicely with juicy ham slices. —Marge Clark, West Lebanon, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1-1/4 hours Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large baking potatoes (1 pound each)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil, optional
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed, divided
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • Paprika

Directions

  • 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Rub with oil if desired. Bake at 400° for 50-75 minutes or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell; set aside.
  • 2. In a small skillet, saute onions in 1/4 cup butter until tender. In a large bowl, mash potato pulp. Stir in onion mixture, cream, sour cream, salt and pepper. Fold in cheese. Stuff into potato shells.
  • 3. Place on a baking sheet. Melt remaining butter; drizzle over potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.

"These were excellent! I did add a little more cheese because we all love cheese but everything else I used was as the recipe called for. I did get 3 people tell me that these were better than what you get in a restaurant & I agree. They are very easy to make too. Will be making these over & over again!"

"Love these potatoes. I also add parsley flakes for added flavor, and instead of white pepper, I use regular ground pepper. I've also used sliced cheese instead of shredded cheese, makes them nice and creamy as well."

"These potatoes are awesome. The only changes I make is to reduce the sour cream to 1/4 cup and add 6 ounces of softened cream cheese."

"Outstanding! These are perfect with a plus! Definitely making again. The leftovers were frozen and re-heated about two weeks later. It worked perfectly! Not a bit watery at all like most frozen potatoes get. Next time, we'll most likely add a little bacon to the filling."
