What are loaded potatoes?

Loaded potatoes are baked potatoes stuffed with delicious ingredients, usually cheese and bacon. They make a great side dish or main course depending on how you prepare them.

Generally, they are mashed potatoes filled with any combination of butter, sour cream, chopped scallions, shredded cheeses (cheddar, Monterey Jack), bacon pieces and seasonings.

These Loaded Potatoes are easy to make and full of flavor, making them a great weeknight dinner side dish or an impressive addition to any meal.

The potatoes are creamy and perfectly seasoned with chives, oregano, garlic powder and paprika, while the bacon adds a satisfying crunch. The melted cheese completes this comfort food dish.

Loaded potatoes are a great way to use up leftover baked potatoes, as they can be reheated in the oven or microwave. They also freeze well and can be stored for up to 3 months. Simply thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.
