Servings 30


  • 30-35 Classic Baby Creamers® potatoes
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs salt
  • Cheddar cheese, or your favorite cheese cut thin to fit in potatoes
  • 12-15 slices bacon, cut each slice into 4 pieces, then after cooking, cut each piece in half


  1. Rinse and dry off potatoes.

  2. Rub vegetable oil on each potato and place each potato between 2 kitchen knives or anything that when you slice the potatoes, the knife will not go all the way through (I used my kitchen knives and laid them flat and the potato is place in between).

  3. Slice each potato approximately 7-8 times, making sure not to cut all the way through then place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.

  4. Preheat oven to 400° when potatoes are almost done being sliced.

  5. Once all the potatoes are sliced, place in oven and bake for about 40 minutes.

  6. While potatoes are baking, fry bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and place on plate lined with paper towels. Cut each piece of bacon in half so that it will fit into the potato and slice cheese to fix as well. 

  7. Remove potatoes from oven and place a small slice of cheese, then bacon alternating with cheese and bacon until all potato slices are filled. Repeat with remaining potatoes.

  8. Once potatoes are filled, place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. 

  9. Remove and top with sour cream, green onions and cilantro.
