Super stuffed baked potato recipe
Yield 2 potatoes
- 2 large russet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons room temperature butter
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1/4-1/2 cup half and half
- 1/3 cup crispy bacon
- 2/3 cup frozen broccoli (smaller pieces)
- 1/3 cup shredded cheese + 2 tablespoons shredded cheese
- Prick potatoes with fork and add to preheated 400 degree F oven. Cook on rack for about 45 minutes until soft in the inside. The outside of the skin will be a crispy but very soft and fluffy in the inside.
- Let potato rest on the counter for about 15 minutes then slice down the middle, scoop out the middle and add to large bowl.
- Take potato shell and put it back in the oven for 10 minutes. This will help create a shell to hold all of the filling.
- Add butter, sour cream and 1/4 cup half and half. Mix on low until combined. Add in crispy bacon (save a little for the top), frozen broccoli and 1/3 cup shredded cheese.
- Mix on medium, adding a little more half and half if needed to make creamy.
- Split filling in half and stuff each potato shell and top with a few extra pieces of frozen broccoli and 1 tablespoon of cheese on each potato.
- Bake for about 15 minutes until cheese is melted and filling is warm. Sprinkle with crispy bacon when pulled out of the oven.
