Serving Size



  • 1 lb baby gold (or red) potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives (optional)
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup cream cheese spread
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • ¼ cup cooked bacon pieces


  1. Place potatoes in microwave-safe bowl; cover and cook on HIGH 8–10 minutes until tender. Let stand 10 minutes to cool. Chop chives, if using; cut cheese into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Slice ⅛ inch off sides of potatoes and scoop about 1–2 teaspoons of flesh from inside, leaving a border and discarding scooped-out potato. Place potatoes on baking sheet, then fill with cheese. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt; bake 5–8 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes to cool.
  3. Combine sour cream, cream cheese, ¼ teaspoon pepper, bacon, and 2 tablespoons chives until blended. Spoon 1 teaspoon mixture on top of each potato; sprinkle with remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper and 1 tablespoon chives. Serve.
