Ingredients
  

For the Cheeseburger Filling:

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbs steak sauce
  • 1 tsp barbecue seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1 Tbs dried minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For the Potatoes:

  • 50 oz small yellow potatoes ~30 potatoes
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • cooking spray
  • Dean’s Cheddar Bacon Dip
  • garnish: snipped chives

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 425F.
  • In a nonstick skillet, brown the beef breaking up into very small pieces as the meat cooks. Drain well.
  • Coat the potatoes evenly with the olive oil. Bake at 425F for 25 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Using a very sharp, straight-edged knife, slice each potato in half. Use a spoon or mellon baller to carefully scoop out the flesh leaving a 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick skin (the actual skin of these potatoes is very thin, so some of the flesh has to remain to make the stuff-able potato "skin"). Reserve 1 cup of the scooped out potato flesh.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the reserved potato with the milk. Add the remaining ingredients for the Cheeseburger Filling and combine.
  • Heat oven to 400F.
  • Place the potato skins on a bake sheet, hollowed side up. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Fill each skin with Cheeseburger Filling. Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes until potato edges are lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven, and let cool 5 minutes. Top each potato skin with a dollop of Dean's cheddar Bacon Dip. Garnish with snipped chives and serve. Yields: 30 bites.
