Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I love Stuffed Baked Potatoes. I have ever since I first tasted this recipe in 1980. It’s a rather simple recipe using baking potatoes, Maine potatoes, evaporated milk, bell peppers, onions, Grey Poupon mustard, tabasco sauce and both parmesan and cheddar cheeses. It’s sprinkled with paprika on top before baking which provides a nice additional touch of flavoring. These potatoes are tasty, elegant and perfect for company dinners.

I served these potatoes for a Friday night care group in January. I served them with my favorite Texas BBQ Ribs recipe. Both were absolutely mouthwatering. Neither were low in calories but they were big on taste. Because I made so many potatoes, I had them for lunches several days afterwards.

Back in 1980, our church cook made this for a special church banquet. I thought the potatoes were so good I asked her to make them for a Deacon and Wives Banquet I was coordinating. I collected several recipes from Pat that weekend. They included one for Sugar Cookies, Creamy Italian Dressing and coffeecakes that she made with assorted jellies or pie fillings. She was a fantastic cook who was employed full time by the Pinellas County School System in the Largo/Seminole area of Florida. Because our church grew so large, she became the full-time church cook in the early to mid 1980s.

We loved Pat Whitfield’s cooking. She was such a happy person to be around. No matter how busy she was in the kitchen, she always had a smile and never got shook over any disasters! I didn’t really know much about cooking at the time, so I was grateful to receive many of Pat’s recipes. It never ceased to amaze me how she could plan and prepare meals for thousands of people like she did. Granted, she had kitchen helpers, but still. Cooking on that scale is a LOT of work!

This recipe has a lot of cheese, but it does not have bacon. I specifically did not add it to this recipe so I could stay closer to Pat’s original recipe. You can add bacon if you prefer, but I want to devote another post to that sort of recipe. Stuffed Baked Potatoes is more of a vintage recipe. It was around long before loaded bacon and cheese became the gold standard for potatoes and soups. It’s a delightful recipe that we still enjoy to this day.
