Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 ½ pounds fingerling potatoes (16 to 18)

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • ½ cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 2 slices cooked bacon, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Toss potatoes, oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Spread on a large rimmed baking sheet; roast, turning once, until tender, about 30 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  3. Slice off the top quarter of each potato. Scoop out the flesh with a small spoon and place in the medium bowl. Add cheese, butter and the remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper; mash until almost smooth. Return the potato mixture to the potato skins. Return to the oven and bake until hot and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Top each potato with sour cream and sprinkle with bacon and chives.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
