Ingredients

4 (6 oz.) baking potatoes
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup milk
1/2 pound bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled
1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed (6 oz.)
2 cups grated Cheddar (8 oz.)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°F. Scrub potatoes, dry well and pierce several times with a fork. Microwave for 4 minutes on high. Turn potatoes over and cook for 4 more minutes. Turn again, cook on low for 2 minutes, turn and cook another 2 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a work surface and cover with a bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Slice a 1/4-inch "lid" off top of each potato; discard. With a small spoon scoop out flesh, leaving a shell with a 1/4-inch "wall" of flesh.

Mix scooped-out potato with butter, salt, pepper and milk in a large bowl. Mash with a fork until blended (mixture should be chunky). Stir in bacon, peas and 1 cup cheese. Fill potato skins with equal amounts of potato mixture. Top with remaining cheese and bake until cheese has melted and filling is warmed, about 10 minutes.
