About Time 

  • Prep Time  5 mins
  • Cook Time  35 mins
  • Total Time  40 minsIngredients
    • 6 large russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
    • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    • Kosher salt
    • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
    • 1/2 c. milk
    • 1/2 c. sour cream
    • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar, divided
    • 2 scallions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
    • Freshly ground black pepperInstructions
      FOR OVEN
      1. Preheat oven to 400°. Pat potatoes completely dry with paper towels. Poke potatoes all over with a fork, then rub with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place potatoes directly on oven racks and bake until easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Place on a large baking sheet and let cool until cool enough to handle.
      2. Cut a thin layer off the top of each potato. Scoop inside out of each potato, leaving a ½” border. Place insides in a large bowl. Keep the potato tops and roast them on the tray as a snack!
      3. To bowl with potatoes, add butter, milk, and sour cream. Mash until butter is melted and potatoes are mostly smooth, but with some chunks. Add 1 cup cheddar and scallions and stir until incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.
      4. Fill baked potatoes with potato mixture and place on a large baking sheet. Top with remaining ½ cup cheddar. Bake until cheese is melty and outside is crispy, about 15 minutes.
      5. Garnish with more scallions before serving.
