Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 1 hr 15 min
Total Time: 1 hr 25 min
Yield: 2 servings


1 large baking potato
   olive oil for brushing potato
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Scrub potato clean, prick several times with a sharp knife, brush with olive oil and bake 1 hour or until tender. Can be done in advance.

Remove from oven, cut a thin slice from both ends to sit square on a plate. Cut in half crosswise, scoop out pulp from each half into a bowl leaving a 1/4-inch shell making a cup.

Add to the bowl, cheese, sour cream, butter, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Mash mixture until almost smooth. Using a spoon or pastry bag fitted with a star tip fill the two cups. Put them upright on a baking sheet, brush skins with olive oil, place in oven. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Garnish with thyme or parsley and serve with a meat course.

Wine recommendation: Merlot; Cabernet Sauvignon
