Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Scrub Idaho® Russet Potatoes until clean and dry them. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are cooked through. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly. Lower oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

  • Cut potatoes lengthwise about 3/4 of the way through, leaving them attached on the bottom. Scrape the insides of potatoes with a spoon into a large mixing bowl. Add butter, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash together or whip with an electric mixer, depending on your desired texture.

  • Spoon filling into potato shells and place on a baking sheet. Toss cooked ground beef with barbecue sauce and spoon equally over potatoes. Sprinkle each potato with remaining cheese, bacon, and green onions.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
