It’s hard to top a classic baked potato with a soft pat of rich butter. Unless, you take it to the limit with an ultra creamy, totally cheesy stuffing that’s way better than what you’d get at a restaurant. Just ask Marge Clark of West Lebanon, Indiana-her recipe for Cheesy Stuffed Baked Potatoes has been a favorite of her crowd for years. “These special potatoes are a hit with my whole family, from the smallest grandchild on up,” she says.
And we can certainly see why. Her version of twice-baked potatoes gets stuffed with a dreamy mixture of half-and-half, sour cream and cheddar cheese with some bright green onions stirred in for good measure. We’d welcome them at dinnertime any day of the week, but they’d also make fantastic appetizers for a party-especially because they’re so easy to make ahead. “If I’m busy, I’ll prepare them up to a week in advance, wrap them well and freeze,” she says. Just reheat in the oven and they’re baked up to steamy, cheesy perfection in no time.
Comfort food doesn’t get much more comforting than these cheddar-stuffed potatoes. But if you’re looking to up your cheese game even more, check out 25 of our cheesiest recipes ever, and just thank us later.
