    INGREDIENTS

    Servings: 4

    4 potatoes

    1 pound bacon, cut into 1.5-inch slices

    Butter Sauce

    4 tablespoons melted butter

    1 tablespoon garlic, minced

    1 tablespoon parsley, minced

    Chive Cream Cheese Sauce

    1 cup milk

    8 ounces cream cheese

    ½ teaspoon salt

    ¼ teaspoon pepper

    1 cup chives, chopped

    PREPARATION

    # Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C.

    # Using a sharp knife, make crosswise cuts in each potato, about ⅛ inch apart, stopping about ¼ inch from the bottom.

    # Microwave your potatoes for 5 minutes per potato.

    # Mix together melted butter, minced garlic, and minced parsley, and brush on the potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

    # Insert 6-8 slices of bacon into the middle section of slots in the sliced potato.

    # Transfer the potatoes to the oven and bake until the outsides are browned and crisp, about 30 minutes, basting with more butter if needed.

    # In a sauce pan, combine the milk, cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Heat and stir until well-combined and smooth.

    # Add in the chopped chives to the cream cheese sauce. Stir and pour over the crispy potatoes.

    # Enjoy!
