A fancy baked potato stuffed with butter, then coated with melted cheese and bacon. You'll never want to go back to the old way.
2medium russet potatoes
3-4Tbspunsalted butterchilled and sliced thin
shredded cheesea mixture of cheddar
Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Scrub potatoes well and pat dry with a paper towel. Carefully slice potatoes thin, almost to the bottom but not quite. You don't want any rounds to break off.
Slice butter very thin. Butter may be trimmed down into triangles for the smaller sections. Fill each potato slice with a piece of butter.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake for 55-60 minutes.
Remove potatoes, drizzle with 1 1/2-2 tbsp heavy cream per potato. Sprinkle with desired cheese, pressing some down into the potato slices as well. Top off with crumbled cooked bacon. Bake for additional 5-10 minutes.
Serve hot. Top off with sour cream and chopped green onions if desired.
