Rated 4.9/5 based on 20 customer reviews

Ingredients (6)

  • 5 medium potatoes, baked
  • cup whole milk, plus more if needed
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3 teaspoons chopped parsley, divided
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Steps (4)

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  • Step 2

    Carefully cut slits lengthwise, then crosswise into tops of each baked potato. Gently scoop out centers, leaving skins intact, and place in a large bowl; reserve 4 potato skins.

  • Step 3

    Add the dressing and milk to the potatoes in the bowl and mash until smooth (if the potatoes seem a little dry add more milk). Stir in bacon, 2 teaspoons parsley, and season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 4

    Generously fill reserved skins with potato mixture and bake until puffy and golden, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon parsley; serve immediately.

  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This! I love baked potatoes, but they get boring. This certainly gives it a different, delicious taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puffy Pots These were the best--been trying to find a good stuffed pot. recipe. I first pierced them and cooked on high in microwave, then followed the rest of the instructions. A little faster if you do it that way, and the skin still comes out crisp in the oven.
