Why I Love This Recipe

Be sure to make enough of these loaded treats because they will quickly disappear. Use the pulp to make a batch of mashed potatoes!


Ingredients You'll Need

8 large baking potatoes
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1/2 cup chopped cooked shrimp or fully cooked ham, optional
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream


Directions

Bake potatoes at 400° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool slightly; cut in half lengthwise and scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 in. shell. (Save removed potato pulp for another use.)


Cut skins into strips or halves; brush skin sides with butter and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle pulp sides with salt and paprika; top each with the green onions, bacon, ham or shrimp, chopped peppers and cheese.


Bake at 450° for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and skins are crisp. Serve with sour cream.
