How to make it

  • Bake the potatoes until soft (about 30 minutes in the microwave).
  • Meanwhile, brown the ground beef and onion, breaking up the meat, until completely cooked through.
  • Drain beef and lower heat. Mix in the bacon and 1/2 to 3/4 cup sour cream. The mixture should be completely moistened, but not wet.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • When potatoes are done, slice a thin "top" off each one. Scoop out the inside, leaving about a 1/4 inch shell.
  • You can discard or save about half the potato you remove.
  • Mash the remaining potato with the butter and remainder of the sour cream, until smooth.
  • Fill each potato shell with 1/4 of the meat mixture.
  • Top each filled potato shell with 1/4 of the mashed potato mixture, sealing the opening completely.
  • Topy each with shredded cheedar cheese, pressing lighly into the mashed potato.
  • Baked in a covered casserole at 350 degrees, for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and bake an additional 5 minutes.
  • NOTE: If you make these ahead, bake for 1 hour before removing lid.
