Servings: 4

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • 4 Russet Potatoes (Washed and Dried)

  • 1 Stick of Butter, sliced (2 if you’re okay with them being ready for that jelly)

  • 1-1/2 Cups of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

  • 5 slices turkey bacon (Optional)

  • Sour Cream

  • Chives

  • Salt, Pepper and Other Seasonings To Taste

Instructions to the right (below on mobile)

  1. You betta wash those hands. As I tell my daughter, I’m not playing with you!

  2. Preheat your oven to 400°

  3. Slice the potatoes as thin as you can. WAIT - don’t cut them all the way through. Leave them connected as the bottom (about 1/4 inch from the bottom)

  4. Places your slices of butter into as many cut crevices as you can (it may get messy)

  5. Season your potatoes and butter to taste, spray everything with cooking spray

  6. Roast for an hour

  7. While Potatoes are in oven, pan fry your pork or turkey bacon

  8. Take the potatoes out the oven and leisurely sprinkle cheese on potatoes, followed by sour creme, bacon and chives.

  • Ooo, that’s kinda different:Top your Southern Belle Butterfly Potato with banana peppers, salsa or jalapeño peppers for a zesty addition! You can even do all three (I haven’t personally done it and wouldn’t. But let me know how that goes. Mmmkay?)

  • Need a Side Dish Idea?Try the Butterfly Potato with Collard Greens or Sautéed Cabbage.
