Loaded BBQ Stuffed Potatoes

BBQ Stuffed Potato
Last nights BBQ was great although it is not as good as had Brian smoked it outdoors but with the cold and snow he didn't mind a bit that I slow roasted the pork indoors!  There is just enough left for us to enjoy giant baked potatoes stuffed with the works which will include the last of the BBQ.

Ingredients for Loaded BBQ Baked Potatoes:

2 giant baking potatoes scrubbed and wrapped in foil
black pepper
2 T. butter
1 C. grated cheese (We like cheddar.)
2 C.warmed and shredded BBQ pork
4-6 sliced green onions
1/2 C. sour cream

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Bake the potatoes 1-1 1/2 hours until fork tender.  This will depend on how large your potatoes are.  Meanwhile heat the BBQ and lower to a slow simmer and keep warm stirring occasionally.

When the potatoes are done remove them from the oven and with a potholder in your hand roll them a bit on a heatproof surface using a little pressure to break up the starch.  Next split the foil open and slice open the potato but do not cut all the way through the lower skin.  Using a tea towel over the top of the potato to protect your hand squeeze the ends gently towards the center until the flesh puffs open.

Now  you are ready to stuff!  Start with a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper and place half of the  butter in the center of each potato.  Next place 1/4th of the shredded cheese,  1/2 of the sour cream, and 1/2 of the pork in each potato.  Top with the rest of the shredded cheese and the green onions.

There you have it a meal in its self.  Enjoy.  Serves 2.   I serve with a fruit salad for dessert.
