  • 4 Russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 8 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded, for topping
  • 1/2 cup sour cream and chopped chives for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a fork, poke holes in potatoes. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out potato flesh with a spoon, leaving 1/2-inch rim to create a boat.
  • Add the potato flesh to a mixing bowl and add milk, sour cream, butter, 1/2 cup cheese and seasoned salt. Using a stand or hand-held mixer, beat on medium speed until creamy. Stir in bacon. Divide the mixture between the potato boats and place on baking sheet.
  • Top potatoes with shredded cheese and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Top with sour cream and chives and serve hot!


  • To make this recipe healthier, use a reduced-calorie variety of sour cream or cut the amount in half, as well as the butter.
  • Russet potatoes work best for this recipe, but give it a try with sweet potatoes or even large yukon gold or red varieties.
  • Go crazy with toppings! Top with any variety of cheese, chives, bacon crumbles, salsa, sriracha, pickled jalapenos or cilantro!
