Prep:
Level: Easy
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1/4 c. Country Crock Original
  • 1/4 c. sour cream
  • 1/4 c. freshly chopped chives
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts divided
  • 3/4 c. shredded Cheddar
  • 6 slices crispy bacon, crumbled
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Prick potatoes all over with a fork or sharp knife and wrap tightly in foil. Bake until soft, about 1 hour.
  2. Unwrap potatoes and cut lengthwise slits in the top of each. Carefully scoop out flesh from center of each potato into a medium bowl, then add Country Crock Original, sour cream, chives, green onion whites, half the cheddar, and half the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon filling back into each potato, mounding it on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and return to oven until melted, about 5 minutes. Top with scallion greens and remaining bacon.
