BODACIOUS BAKED POTATOA big old baked potato with all the trimmings is one of the easiest – and tastiest – side dishes around. Some folks make a meal out of a baked potato! Start with a good russet potato and add some of the sour cream that we jazzed up with Lone Star Roasted Garlic & Chive Dip mix and the simple baked potato rises to a whole ‘nother level of good!


Serves 4.

4 russet baking potatoes, lightly brushed with canola oil and
baked until soft
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons Fredericksburg Farms Lone Star Roasted Garlic & Chive Dip
Butter slices
Shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


While potatoes are baking, whisk the sour cream and Lone Star Roasted Garlic & Chive Dip mix together, blending well. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to use. Split the baked potatoes open, cutting them almost in half, but leaving a hinge at the bottom. Slightly smash the potatoes from each end to form a sort of pocket. Serve the potatoes hot, passing the butter slices, shredded cheese, seasoned sour cream, and salt and pepper separately. Enjoy!
