This recipe from Samantha Landman of Huntsville, Alabama, combines some of Paula’s favorites—butter, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream—for truly decadent twice baked potatoes.
4 large baking potatoes
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil. Wash potatoes and dry well. Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet, and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until tender; let cool until easy to handle.
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add green onion and bell pepper, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender; remove from heat.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell; set potato shells aside. Place potato pulp into a medium bowl. Add vegetable mixture, cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, ham, 3/4 cup cheese, and salt; stir until combined.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Spoon mixture evenly into reserved potato shells. Place on baking sheet, and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
