4 servings (serving size: 2 potato halves)

Piled high with ham, cheese, and sour cream, this filling dish makes for an easy weeknight supper when paired with a salad. Using a microwave to cook the potatoes first saves more than an hour of baking time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at high 16 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 8 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat broiler.

Step 3

Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Combine potato pulp, ham, 1/2 cup cheese, 1/3 cup green onions, sour cream, and pepper.

Step 4

Spoon the potato mixture into shells. Combine 1/2 cup cheese and remaining green onions, and sprinkle over potatoes. Place potatoes on a baking sheet; broil 4 minutes or until golden.

With addition of paprika, coarse mustard, a tablespoon of whipped butter & a combination of cheeses—Swiss, sharp, and pepper jack—, topped off with a dose of hot sauce, this was delicious! Served with steamed broccoli and a small fruit salad

I split one big russet between my husband and myself. This is very tasty and so easy. Added butter when eating as they were a little dry - didn't put in enough sour cream. A definite repeat.

This recipe is great for a cold day. It was easy to make, and was yummy to eat. The only thing about it was there were too many onions. But other than that, it was delicious!

A great way to use leftover ham! I added a little bit of cream cheese also! Very good and my family loved the potatoes. Served with a spinach salad. Easy weeknight recipe. I baked the potatoes in the oven instead of the microwave...I think they taste better that way!

nice for a change of pace!
