Ingredients

  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 Tbsp. creamy, crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup half and half or heavy cream
  • 4 strips crispy bacon finely chopped
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • chopped chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Bake potatoes in the oven until tender, about one hour.  Alternatively, cook potatoes in the microwave using the "potato" setting, or about 3-4 minutes per side. (Cook 3-4 minutes, flip, cook 3-4 additional minutes.)
  • If your oven is not already on from baking the potatoes, set it now to 250.  Once potatoes are cooked through, slice each potato in half lengthwise.

  • Use a spoon to remove the starchy inner potato, leaving the skin as a shell.

  • Place removed potato into a large bowl, and add butter, blue cheese, half and half.  Mix to thoroughly combine.  Sprinkle in bacon, then add salt and pepper to taste.
