"The perfect side for any meat based dish."Serves 5 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 50
Why I Love This Recipe
I love baked potatoes, usually I prepare them in a simple way, but when I want to treat a special someone or just have more time, I prepare this "enhanced" version :)
Ingredients You'll Need
6 large potatoes of choice
150g (5oz) of cream cheese
100g (3,5oz) of cheddar cheese
200g (7oz) of mozzarella cheese
100g (3,5oz) of sour cream
100g (3,5oz) of bacon
2-3 small shallots
fresh salt & pepper
scallions for garnish
2-3 cm (1 inch) cube of butter
Cook potatoes for about 30 minutes. They need to be fully cooked but still firm and holding their shape.
Roast diced shallots and bacon.
Prepare stuffing by mixing the shallots, bacon and mozzarella in a bowl.
Cut the potatoes into halves and scoop out the flesh.
Mix about half of the potato flesh with the stuffing.
Stuff the potatoes and top them with cheddar cheese.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until cheese browns. Set the temp to approx. 200 Celsius or 400 Fahrenheit.
Serve with an additional topping of sour cream and scallions.
Pairs Well With
Any meat based dish, but works as a simple dinner too.
