  • 1 large russet potato
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup shredded smoked gouda plus more for topping
  • 1 Tbsp. minced jalapeno fresh
  • 2 strips chopped crispy bacon (= 2 Tbsp.)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt


  • In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except the potato.
  • Cook your potato in the oven or microwave until soft in the center.  (Just as you would a baked potato).  Slice the potato in half lengthwise, and scoop out the centers, adding them directly into your bowl of other ingredients.
  • Thoroughly mix everything together.  Divide the mixture between the two empty potato halves, and top with a small handful of shredded smoked gouda.
  • Broil on low for about five minutes, or until the tops are bubbly and brown.  (The potatoes should still be warm from the baking process!  If they need a little heat, just pop the oven to 350 for 10-15 minutes until they're heated to your preference.)
  • Top with sliced jalapeño and chopped chives for garnish.  Serve hot!
