This recipe was a staple in my home when I lived in San Diego along with usually four other girls, at times more. We were a family away from home always keeping ourselves nourished and comforted through what we called our, "eating like king and queen dinners". Every one of us were huge fans of pepper-jack cheese so this dish was perfect for all to enjoy! —JennT1981

What You'll Need
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups pepper-jack cheese, shredded and 1/4 cup reserved
  • 8 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and cook until almost tender, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  2. Carefully cut a wedge out of the top of each potato and scoop potato from center and place into a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, except for reserved cheese, and blend until smooth.
  3. Evenly stuff each potato shell with mixture and top each with 1 tablespoon of cheese.
  4. Return to oven and bake another 10 to 20 minutes, depending on size of potatoes, to warm through and slightly brown cheese on top.
