Ingredients

  • 4-5 medium potatoes
  • 12 oz sour cream
  • 1 pack ranch dressing mix
  • 6-8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 3-4 tablespoons salt
  • chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Bake potatoes until insides are soft (I prefer to put in an Instant Pot with 1 cup of water for about 15 minutes). Allow to cool before handling.
  • Mix together sour cream, ranch dressing mix, bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Once potatoes are cool, cut in half and scrape out the insides with a spoon, leaving just enough around the peel to keep skins stable. Mix scraped out potato with the sour cream mixture until well-blended.
  • Brush outside of skins with butter and sprinkle with salt; place on a lined cookie sheet. Then, spoon sour cream mixture back into skins.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until tops of potatoes start to brown.
  • Garnish with chives.
Servings: 8 -10 servings
