4 medium sized russet potatoes
1/2 cup milk or cream (more or less to get a nice creamy texture)
1 Tablespoon butter
1 package of lean bacon
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
A drizzle of Tabasco Pepper sauce (We used Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Scrub the potatoes with a vegetable brush, cut the tips of the ends and any blemishes you wish to remove.
Spear the potatoes with a knife right through.
Place on a lower rack in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until done.
Poke a small sharp knife into the potato to test.
If it goes in easy and the potato is soft it is done.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
While the potatoes are baking, prepare the bacon bits.
Slice the bacon strips into about 1/2 inch pieces and in a large frying pan, cook until the bacon is crispy.
Remove the bacon from the frying pan onto a plate lined with paper towels that will absorb the bacon fat. Set aside.
While the potatoes are baking, prepare the cheddar cheese by grating and setting aside.
Take your baked potato and slice it down the middle lengthwise.
Use a spoon to scoop out the potato leaving about 1/4 inch of potatoes still in the skin.
Put the scooped out potato into a small mixing bowl, add the butter and milk or cream and use an electric mixer to mix until the potato stuffing is a nice creamy texture.
Using a mixing spoon stir in 1/2 cup of the grated cheddar cheese, and save the rest to put on the tops of the potatoes.
Put the prepared potato halves onto a baking sheet and place back into the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
Remove from the oven just long enough to sprinkle on the reserved shredded cheddar cheese and the bacon bits.
Put back into the oven for 5-7 minutes longer or until the cheese on top looks melted.
Serve with sour cream and a drizzle of Tabasco if you want a little zing on your potato.
Wonderful with a fresh salad and a meal unto itself.
