  • Russet Potatoes
  • Sour Cream
  • Butter
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Bacon Bits


  • Cut large potatoes in half lengthwise
  • Add a bit of butter and wrap in tin foil
  • Place wrapped potatoes over the campfire (or on a grill) but not directly in the flame
  • Rotate every 10 minutes or so
  • Cook until tender (usually takes about 30-45 minutes)
  • To test if done: with something to protect your hands, or using tongs, squeeze the potato, if it feels soft and your finger leaves an indentation, it is probably done
  • Carefully remove from the fire.
  • Unwrap each potato
  • Scoop the innards into a mixing bowl, leaving the skins and a small rim of potato intact
  • Be careful, the potatoes are hot!
  • Mix a handful or two of mozzarella cheese, bacon bits and a dollop or two of sour cream into the potatoes, mashing as you go
  • Refill the mixture into each potato skin
  • Add a topping of cheese and bacon bits
  • Rewrap the potatoes and place back on the fire for another 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and potato is warmed through
