Equipment

  • stand mixer
  • Smoker

Ingredients

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tb. butter
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tb. fresh chives chopped
  • 3 scallions sliced
  • 1 lb. bacon
  • 2 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Lay bacon on a wire cooking rack placed on a foil wrapped cookie sheet and smoke at 300 degrees for about 60-90 minutes, until desired crispiness.
  • Bake potatoes unwrapped in a 350 degree oven for 60-90 minutes depending on the size of the potato. Test for doneness by poking a fork into it.
  • Allow potatoes to cool just long enough to be comfortably handled, but no more.
  • Slice potatoes in half the long way. Scoop the insides of the potato out into a mixing bowl, being careful to leave the skins in tact. Place the potato skin "boats" in an aluminum foil pan and set aside.
  • Using a whisk attachment in a stand mixer, whip the potatoes along with the butter, heavy whipping cream, sour cream, salt and pepper.
  • Once you've reached your desired texture (whether you like them more whipped or lumpy), stir in remaining ingredients of chives, scallions, crumbled smoked bacon, and 1 cup shredded cheese until blended thoroughly.
  • Spoon potato mixture back into the potato skin boats. Top with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Place the pans of potatoes into your 300 degree smoker for about 45 minutes to an hour.
  • (optional) Top potatoes with additional smoked bacon.

Notes

We recommend smoking the bacon and potatoes with pecan wood or apple wood.
