These Cheesy Stuffed Baked Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food. Baking the potatoes until tender and then filling them with a creamy mixture of butter, Uncle Dan's Classic Ranch Dressing, and a blend of Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses creates a deliciously cheesy and flavorful dish. Sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, these stuffed baked potatoes are baked to perfection, resulting in a creamy and indulgent side dish that will satisfy your cravings.
- 4 baking potatoes
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 cup prepared Uncle Dan's Classic Ranch (Original Southern) Dressing
- Parmesan Cheese (optional)
- Bacon bits and chopped onions (optional toppings)
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Scrub the potatoes clean and pat them dry with a paper towel. Prick each potato several times with a fork.
- Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
- Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them cool slightly.
- Slice each potato in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the insides of the potatoes, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato flesh attached to the skin. Transfer the scooped-out potato flesh to a large bowl.
- Add the butter and Uncle Dan's Classic Ranch Dressing to the bowl with the potato flesh. Mash and blend everything together until smooth and creamy.
- Stir in the grated Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses until well combined.
- Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells, dividing it evenly among them.
- Sprinkle the stuffed potatoes with Parmesan cheese, if desired. You can also add bacon bits and chopped onions as additional toppings.
- Place the stuffed potatoes on a baking sheet and return them to the oven. Bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly golden on top.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
