Cheese-Stuffed Potatoes

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 65 min.


4 servings

I developed this recipe completely by accident. I was making my usual stuffed potatoes and was in a hurry. So instead of mashing the potatoes, I just tossed everything together. My family and friends actually liked them better.


  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Bake potatoes at 425° for 45 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; reduce temperature to 350°. Cut each potato in half horizontally; leaving a thin shell, carefully scoop pulp into a bowl. Set potato skins aside.
  2. To the pulp, add sour cream, Parmesan cheese, bacon, onion and horseradish. Mix with a fork until combined but not mashed. Add salt and pepper. Fill potato skins. Top each potato with 1 teaspoon butter and sprinkle with cheese. Place in a shallow baking dish. Bake at 350° until heated through, about 20 minutes.
