I received this recipe in on of my daily recipes from "Peak of the Market", our local produce company. They have such a yummy flavor because of the ranch dressing.
- Bake potatoes at 400F for 1 hour.
- Slice in half and scoop out insides, leaving a small amount in shell.
- Mash potatoes, add sour cream, dressing and bacon bits; beat until fluffy.
- Stir in 1 cup of cheese.
- Spoon into potato shells, top with remaining cheese.
- Bake at 350F for an additional 20 minute.
I was surprised at how creamy these were! I did not have any bacon bits, so I fried 1 slice of bacon until crispy then crumbled that into the potato mixture. I also added some chives. I will be making these again!
Absolutely the best stuffed potatoes we have ever eaten!
These potatoes are absolutely wonderful! I didn't have any bacon bits, so I cooked some bacon that I had on hand. They turned out perfectly. I had never made twice baked potatoes until these and now they'll become a staple in our house. Thanks so much for sharing, Mel.
