Loaded Baked Potato

     Everyone loves a good baked potato!  Taking the time to slowly cook them and then adding some of your favorite toppings makes such an amazing side dish or snack.  These are so easy to make and once done you and your guest will have this very flavorful side dish.

     What we like so much about this side dish is that it can go with just about anything.  You can add different things to it and it doesn't take long to prep and serve.  With just dressing up the potato after it's been cooked you are good to go!  Below are the steps to follow along with our video!  Please check it out.

Prep Time: 5 Minues
Cook Time: 1 hr 10 minutes
Total Time: 1.15 Hr

This recipe serves 2

2 Potatoes (one per person) Russet or Idaho work great.
2 Table Spoon Butter
3 Table Spoon Parsley
3 Table Spoon Rosemary
3 Table Spoon Chives
1 Table spoon Green Onion
3 Table Spoon Olive Oil
3 Small pieces cooked crispy bacon
1/4 Cup Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Buy a fresh block and shred it your self)
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
1-2 Table Spoons Sour Cream

Wash and dry your potatoes
Using a fork or sharp knife poke a few holes around the potato
Finley chop up the parsley and rosemary
Drizzle some olive oil on the potato and then roll it in the oil
Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the potato, flip over and season again
Sprinkle the rosemary and parsley over the potato and roll it to have each side coated a bit
Place in your oven at 375 for 1 hr
As the potato is cooking dice up a green onion.
Take out and slice down the middle, but not all the way.
With a fork pry the potato open a bit or use your hands to push each side.  Be careful it will be hot!
Using your fork or knife, fluff up the potato insides.
Place two thin slices of butter in the potato.
Shred the extra sharp cheddar cheese over the potato, It will meld down so shred quit a bit.
Place back in the over between 4-6 minutes still at 375 degrees.
Take out again and place a few larger sized pieces of crispy cooked bacon inside. Or you can cumble it up.
Sprinkle the chopped up green onion on the sour cream.

Serve hot and enjoy!

     This side dish is again very easy to make and will taste so much more enjoyable than a potato you microwaved!  Since the potato takes an hour to cook you can still make your main dish.  Once done with some dressing up your potato is set!

     The picture below was one Chef made, it came out great however if you wanted to add more cheese or sour cream you can.  Some pictures you see the potato over flowing with toppings.  We feel this is done to often and can overpower the potato.  Chef however didn't want to to much flavor or take away the taste of the potato so we topped it off at an even level.  We really enjoyed this and was glad Chef let us all try this!
Thank you Chef!

     Try this recipe out we think you will really enjoy it.  Potatoes are great for you, however and if you wish you can not add the sour cream or bacon.  If you are looking for a lighter loaded baked potato.  However we encourage you to go all out.  Loaded baked potatoes deserve it all!  Enjoy the video below and be sure to subscribe to our channel if you like what you see!
