Ingredients

  • 10 large Baby Potatoes
  • 3.5oz / 100g Bacon, cooked to preference and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup / 35g Cheddar, grated
  • 1/4 cup / 60ml Double/Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Sour Cream, to serve
  • Fresh Chives, finely diced to serve
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Combine your potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in the oven at 220c/430f for 20mins or until golden, crispy and fork tender.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes then slice in half. With a tsp/knife, scoop the majority of the potato out, leaving a thin outer layer to keep the skins sturdy. Combine the scooped out filling with your bacon, cheese, cream, butter, garlic powder and seasoning to taste.
  • Scoop 1 tsp of mixture back into each boat and place back on an oven tray. Pop them under the grill and broil for a few minutes until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with sprinkled fresh chives and sour cream.

Notes

a) To make these with regular potatoes, firstly ensure you weigh the potatoes. 10 baby potatoes weigh around 350g/12oz, so just adjust the filling measurements according to that. In terms of cooking, use the same method as these - bake then grill. Check out my post of the perfect baked potato to help you with this!
 
b) Calories based on using 1 tsp olive oil to roast and not taking into consideration any sour cream. Per loaded potato:
