Creamy Stuffed Baked Potatoes Recipe

My mom gave me the recipe for these twice-baked potatoes, and I altered them by adding garlic, bacon and green onions. They're perfect for a potluck or even an elegant meal. My two boys absolutely love them! -Kristyn Drews, Omaha, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:10 servings


  • 5 medium baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • crumbled cooked Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon and chopped green onion


  • 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat the pulp with butter. Stir in 1 cup of cheese, sour cream, salad dressing mix, chives and garlic. Spoon into potato shells. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 3. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 ° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Top with bacon and green onions. Yield: 10 servings.

"I've made these countless times over the years!! My entire family is wild about these stuffed potatoes, especially my youngest son. He'll look at the pan as it comes out of the oven and ask, "Well, that my portion, what are the rest of you eating?!" I like the extra flavoring the ranch dressing gives these spuds. Something special for company and they can be made ahead and placed in the fridge until baking time."

"My son absolutely loves these potatoes. I load up the oven with potatoes, stuff them, and then instead of popping them back in the oven, I arrange them on cookie sheets in the freezer. Once frozen, I transfer to freezer bags for quick meals or when my son wants a "snack" - he'll eat three in one sitting."

"Very Good! I cheated a little and used microwave potatoes. But after placing the "pulp" back in the shells, I baked it. I came out great and was way faster."

"Very good, very filling. Unless your family is large or you're serving these at a party you'll undoubtedly have leftovers. They heat up just fine in the microwave."
