We make potatoes this way a lot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scrub potatoes and rub skins with shortening. Prick skins with fork to allow steam to escape. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.
  2. Mash avocado with fork to chunky texture and mix in sour cream and seasonings. When potatoes are done, cut down the center, then spoon in avocado mixture. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.

A very good and quick weeknight meal. I like to add a little hot sauce and lime to my guacamole, so did that here too, and it was great that way. You could definitely do this up and add more things as well (cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, etc.), though we didn't.

Awesome potatoes! I knew when I read this recipe that it would be perfect for me. I put a little shredded cheese on top, too. I think these would be good with or without the crumbled bacon. Thanx for a great baked potato! I'll make these again.
