Baked Potatoes with Gorgonzola Recipe

  • 4 medium yellow-flesh potatoes (such as Yukon gold)
  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • milk (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola or other blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon (1-inch) pieces red bell pepper (about 2 peppers)
  1. Scrub potatoes with a brush; pat dry, and prick with fork. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 40 to 60 minutes or until tender. Cut a lengthwise slice from the top of each potato; discard skin from slice and place pulp in bowl. Scoop pulp out of each potato, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Add pulp to bowl.
  2. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream, garlic salt, and pepper; beat until smooth. If necessary, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons milk to make of desired consistency.
  3. Spoon the potato mixture into the shells. Place in a 2-quart square or rectangular baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in a 425 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola or blue cheese and chopped red sweet pepper.
