I made this recipe up all by my little self. The fillings are all optional. You can use whatever you like - these are just the ones we've discovered taste the absolute BEST together. :)
Overstuffed Twice Baked Potatoes
4 large baking potatoes
1 stick butter, softened
8 slices bacon, chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped
sharp white cheddar, grated
Montreal Steak Seasoning (from Costco)
s & p
First, preheat oven to 375.
Start onions in a skillet, on medium heat, with melted butter and some salt. Wash potatoes well and wrap in plastic wrap. Poke 3-4 times on ONE SIDE with a fork. Microwave on high for 9-10 minutes, until soft. Add bacon to onion pieces, and continue cooking.
Unwrap and bake potatoes for 15-20 minutes. Let cool for about five minutes. Slice in half lenghtwise, and scoop out insides into a large mixing bowl. (The sides with the holes poked in them can be completely scooped clean, with the skins thrown out. The other side, leave a little potato around the edges to hold the shape when re-stuffed with the filling.)
Add stick of butter, onion and bacon mix (drained), and as much cheese as desired. Let cheese and butter melt, and stir well. Then add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sour cream, dash of milk, and seasonings. Mix well and spoon into the 4 remaining halves of the potatoes. There should be some leftover. Place in small, ovenproof dish and top all with more cheese.
Bake until cheese is melted, about 10 more minutes. Enjoy!
