Bacon-Cheddar Stuffed Potatoes

“My daughters just go crazy over these potatoes! They tell all their friends that their mom is making the best potatoes in the world.” -Julie Putnam of Lebanon, Ohio
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Cook: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup plus 6 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3/4 cup French onion dip
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 18-22 minutes or until tender, turning once. Let stand for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, 3/4 cup cheese, dip, bacon, onions and pepper. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell. Add pulp to the mayonnaise mixture and mash.
  • Spoon into potato shells. Return to the microwave-safe plate. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 5 minutes or until heated through.
