  • 4 large sweet or Russet potatoes
  • 3 thick-sliced bacon strips, cut into quarters
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups refrigerated fully cooked barbecued shredded pork
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro


  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 12-15 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Saute corn and onion in drippings until tender.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut an "X" in each potato; fluff pulp with a fork. Place pork in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Top potatoes with pork, corn mixture, bacon, goat cheese and cilantro.
