Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes (new potatoes)

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

3 ounces cream cheese

1/3 cup minced green onions

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 clove minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 cup crushed garlic flavored pretzels

1/2 stick butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Pierce potatoes and rub skins with oil. Place in a shallow baking pan in a single layer. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until tender. Allow to cool.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine Monterey jack, sour cream, cream cheese, onions, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper and mix well. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell. Add pulp to the cheese mixture and mash. Stir in half of the cooked, crumbled bacon. Stuff potato shells.
  4. In a separate bowl add the crushed pretzels, the remaining bacon, and the melted butter. Mix well. Top each potato with the pretzel topping.
  5. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until heated through. These can also be frozen and then baked at a later date. Be sure to thaw before baking.
