These stuffed potatoes deliver a rich balance of texture and flavor with crisp scallions and crunchy bacon complimenting fluffy spinach mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, and sour cream. They’re guaranteed to impress on any holiday dinner party menu, from Friendsgiving to New Year’s.
8 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups), divided
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sliced scallions
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Pierce potatoes with a fork, and bake in preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour.
Cool slightly, and cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Combine warm potato flesh, cream cheese, milk, and butter in a medium bowl, and mash with a potato masher until combined. Stir in spinach, bacon, onion, salt, pepper, and 1 cup of the cheese until well combined.
Divide spinach mixture among potato shells; sprinkle each evenly with remaining 1 cup cheese, and bake at 400°F until golden and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Top with sour cream and scallions.
