Recipe created by Chef Santana Caress


2 Bloom Fresh Scallions, sliced (for garnish)

8 whole Bloom Fresh Potatoes
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Butter
salt, to taste
1-1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
8 slices fried bacon, chopped
1/2 cup greek yogurt or sour cream (for garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Scrub and dry potatoes, then rub them down with 2 Tbsp of olive oil.
  3. Bake potatoes on the baking sheet until they are tender (30-40 minutes), then allow them to cool before handling them.
  4. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out 3/4 of the filling. Melt the butter and remaining olive oil, then brush both the outside and the inside of the potatoes and be sure to lightly salt them.
  5. Put potatoes back on the baking sheet, face-down, and return to the oven for 5 to 8 minutes. flip potatoes to make sure they’re crisp on both sides.
  6. Remove from oven. Sprinkle the insides of the potato skins with cheddar and chopped bacon. Return back to the oven for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
  7. Serve immediately with a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream (your choice) and garnish with scallion.
