Stuffed Potatoes with Peas and Bacon

These twice baked potatoes get their flavor from the classic combination of peas and bacon. Crumbled bacon is a traditional topping for twice baked, stuffed potatoes. The addition of smashed peas adds nutrition and a comforting, yet unexpected twist to this steak night classic.

2 Russet Potatoes

1/4 Cup Green Peas, if using frozen allow to defrost for 20 minutes while potatoes bake

1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

2 Tablespoons Milk

1/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

2 Strips Crumbled Bacon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees farenheit.

Prick tops of potatoes with a fork and place on baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove potatoes from oven and allow to cool.

Use a spoon to scoop out potato from skin. Set skins aside.

Mash potato, butter, milk and salt until creamy.

In a separate bowl use a fork to smash peas lightly until just crushed open.

Add smashed peas to smashed potatoes, combine.

Add potato/pea combo back into skins top with remaining ingredients.

Finish for 10 minutes in oven or until heated through and cheese is melted.
