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


# 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!
