Stuffed Baked Potato Recipe

You can bake or boil your potatoes. Boiling will make the first part of this dish go faster, but baking probably adds even more flavour. You want them tender but don't boil them until they're falling apart. Let them cool enough so that you can handle them before scooping out the flesh.

5-10 servings (I can eat a whole potato, how about you?)

5 medium boiled or baked potatoes, whole with skin on
1/4 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 chopped scallion
sprinkle of the following spices
paprika, garlic salt, pepper, dill
3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice

Preheat oven to 400F.

Cut the potatoes in half then scoop out the flesh leaving enough flesh to hold the shape of the skin.

Mash the flesh with the sour cream, butter, parmesan and scallion. Fill the skins with this mashed potato mixture. Place the potatoes in a glass baking dish. Mix the spices together then sprinkle the spice mix over the potatoes. Top with some shredded cheese.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Tip: If you're feeling really naughty, you could add some homemade bacon bits and extra sour cream to these.
