Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 1 hr 15 mins 1 hr 30 mins 4 servings


  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (225g)
  • 1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon (8 slices) (113g)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (60g)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (28g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1.25g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (0.6g)
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions, additional shredded cheese, sour cream, and bacon bits

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Scrub the potatoes clean and pat them dry. Pierce each potato several times with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking.
  3. Place the potatoes directly on the middle oven rack and bake for about 1 hour, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
  4. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded cheddar cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, sour cream, melted butter, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly until they are safe to handle.
  6. Slice off the top third of each potato lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a thin layer of potato attached to the skin. Place the scooped-out potato flesh into the mixing bowl with the filling mixture.
  7. Mash the potato flesh with the filling mixture until well combined and creamy.
  8. Spoon the filling mixture back into the hollowed-out potato skins, evenly distributing it among the four potatoes.
  9. Place the stuffed potatoes back into the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Once the cheese is melted and the potatoes are heated through, remove them from the oven.
  11. Serve the Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes hot, garnished with optional toppings like chopped green onions, additional shredded cheese, sour cream, and bacon bits.
