Favorite Ingredient Friday - Stuffed Baked Potatoes


Being now in the process of rejoining normal life, I'm trying to get back to regular things. One thing I enjoy doing is cooking and trying new recipes. This is one I've been using for years, but I thought YOU might enjoy trying it.
It comes from a cookbook called Home on the Range by Marabel Morgan (author of The Total Woman). This book was given to me by a dear friend just to bless me during one of Marabel's speaking engagements at our church.
The recipe is for Stuffed Baked Potatoes. My husband LOVES this recipe. Sadly, I don't make it often enough to please him, but when I do he always mentions how yummy they are.
Stuffed Baked Potatoes
Serves 8
8 large baking potatoes
4 T. butter
2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
3 T. finely chopped onions
1 minced garlic clove
1 t. salt
Dash of cayenne pepper
1/4 t. white or black pepper
2 T. melted butter
1 T. chopped parsely (for garnish)
Paprika
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  1. Wash potatoes; dry, rub with oil and bake at 400 degrees for one hour or until done. Saute onions and garlic in butter until tender; set aside.
  2. Cut 1/4 in. slice off top of potatoes and scoop out pulp, leaving shells intact and about 1/4 in. thick. Mash pulp and add onions and garlic, half the cheese, egg yolks mixed with sour cream, and seasonings. Beat well and restuff potato shells.
  3. Brush tops with melted butter and slide under a broiler for a moment to brown. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, bacon bits, parsley and paprika. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy these - we always do! For more great recipes, visit Overwhelmed with Joy!

I make something very similar. I don't put eggs in mine. I have to try that next time. One thing I do is put cream cheese AND sour cream in mine. Nothing about it is lowfat but they are so good!! Reading your recipe makes me hungry for these!!
