- 4 Baking Potatoes
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1-1/3 cup shredded Colby-Jack Cheese, divided use
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
- 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
- 1 pound cooked ground beef (I seasoned mine with ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon garlic)
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
- 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 green onions, sliced
- Preheat oven to 400° F.
- Scrub potatoes until clean and dry them. Place on a baking sheet and bake one hour or until potatoes are cooked through.
- Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly.
- Lower oven temperature to 375° F. Cut potatoes lengthwise about ¾ of the way through, leaving them attached on the bottom.
- Scrape insides of potatoes with a spoon into a large mixing bowl.
- Add butter, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash together or whip with an electric mixer, depending on your desired texture.
- Spoon filling into potato shells and place on a baking sheet.
- Toss ground beef with barbecue sauce and spoon equally over potatoes. Sprinkle each potato with remaining cheese, bacon and green onions.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
