  • 2 tsp Buffalo wing sauce
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled, and divided
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced and divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Gorgonzola Dressing1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

Directions

  • Slice each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of peel for a shell. Place shells on foil-lined baking sheet and set aside.
  • In microwave, heat milk and butter until butter melts, about 20 seconds. In large mixing bowl mash potatoes with milk and butter. Stir in Buffalo sauce, 1/2 of the bacon, and 1/2 of the green onions.
  • Divide mashed potato mixture among potato shells. Sprinkle tops with the shredded cheese.
  • Bake until cheese is melted and potato mixture is hot through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese and green onions. Serve with Gorgonzola Dressing (recipe below).
