While at my grandmother’s for Easter dinner she made blue cheese twice baked they were so good and the flavor matched really well with the garlicky leg of lamb.
4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp. butter
1 pint heavy cream
1 tsp. finely chopped parsley
1/2 tsp. of garlic powder
1/2 cup blue cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
Bake potatoes until fully cooked.
Sauté bacon with the butter for 3-4 minutes in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients; simmer on low heat for 6-8 minutes.
Cut baked potatoes in half lengthwise, removing potato from the skin leaving 1/4 inch shell. Set shell aside. Mix potato with the cream mixture until thoroughly combined.
Fill potato shells with mixture either with a spoon or if you like it a little fancier use a pastry bag with decorative tip.
Bake potatoes in 350ºF oven for 12 to 15 minutes until heated through.
