Avocado and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes

Avocado and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes

Avocado and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes are a huge yes with my family and I never have any leftovers, and I usually make a few extra as well, because seconds are always requested.

I could live on these as I love each and every ingredient, even the Sour Cream ! And who does not like Bacon ??

Depending whether you are serving these stuffed Potatoes as appetizers or as a side dish, you can use any Potato - from Baby Potatoes to full size Potatoes.

The Avocado and Bacon stuffed Potatoes look especially great when you use Baby Potatoes and place them on a bed of shredded lettuce using a large serving plate, to serve as appetizers.

In this recipe the secret lies in the Garlic Sauce Powder {see below}, which not only make the filling creamier, but also adds a delicious flavor. No extra Salt or Pepper is necessary as this is not only a topping, but a proper stuffing, which you, well... stuff into every nook of the sliced open Potato.

I always keep a little of the Bacon and extra Chives to sprinkle over the top. Visually it adds so much to these already tasty Potatoes, but it is definitely not required.

*Right, getting to the Garlic Sauce Powder - I use something like KNORR or ROYCO which is the packets of Powder that you normally add one cup boiling water to and have an instant Sauce. In this recipe I do not add the water, but instead use the Powder only. I also use different flavors of Garlic when making these Potatoes every other time - Roasted Garlic, Creamy Garlic .. you get the idea.

3.) Cut a deep cross in each Potato - not all the way through, leave a little to keep the Potato together - pull the Potatoes open very gently.
