Servings: 6 servings


  • 6 each baked potatoes
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sour cream more or less as preferred
  • 3 tablespoons milk whole or 2%
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1-`/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese more or less as preferred
  • 1 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled pork or turkey bacon
  • 1 cup smoked sausage, cooked chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup French fried onions optional
  • 1/2 cup green chives for garnish optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut warm baked potatoes in half (lengthwise). Scoop out soft center of each half and drop in a medium bowl. Leave a thin wall of baked potatoes around each skin to help hold the filling.
  • For easy clean up, line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper (optional). Arrange potato skins on the baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Use a masher or large spoon to mash together potatoes, melted butter (or margarine), sour cream, and milk. If mixture appears dry, add another 2 tablespoons of milk. Season with salt and black pepper as preferred.
  • Spoon or pipe mashed potato into skins. Top with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon or chopped smoked sausage. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until warmed through and melty.
  • Top with chives and serve warm.
