Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Cold Pack can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Pierce potatoes with a fork; place on an ungreased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Cool potatoes on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 375˚F.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato. Carefully scoop out center pulp, leaving each potato with a shell. Place pulp in a medium bowl. Add jalapeno cheese and 1/2 cup bacon; stir and mash to desired consistency. Pipe or spoon filling into potato shells; return to the pan. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are warmed through.

Recipe Tip

  • A small 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon is just the right size for scooping the center pulp from the potatoes.

Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Made with 9-month aged, sharp cheddar, Carr Valley’s Jalapeno Cold Pack Cheese Spread has bell peppers and spicy heat from jalapenos. No heat is used to process cold pack cheese; therefore, it should be stored in the refrigerator.
