I'm unsure how this came up in conversation, and I'm unsure of where these yummy things come from (the US, maybe?) but I got the run down and had been itching to make them for ages, and finally did last night.
Although it took a little while, as the potatoes were so large, they were well worth the wait and tasty and creamy. Personally, I think they're the perfect, cos you get a little mash and little baked potato, all you need is fries. Heehee.
Here's what I did, but you can and or subtract as much as you like to make them to your taste.
4 large potatoes
2 large tbs sour cream
handful grated cheddar cheese
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 tbs butter
2 bacon rashers, diced
Salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 200C. Wrap potatoes in alfoil and bake until cooked through.
Fry the bacon until crispy and drain on paper towels.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Slice off the top of the potatoes, scoop out the flesh, and mix with butter, sour cream, cheddar, and salt and pepper.
Spoon the potatoes back into their shells, and bake again for a few minutes, before serving garnished with the bacon and spring onions.
