Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Mini Loaded Baked Potatoes. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
I used mini gold potatoes which have the best flavor for this recipe, however, I’m sure any color mini potato will work great.
Regular sour cream or vegan sour cream will work great for this recipe.
I used turkey bacon, but regular bacon works fine! If you don’t want to cook the bacon from scratch you can even use bacon bits from the store.
Fresh chives are highly recommend over dried chives.
A touch of Mexican blend cheese adds so much flavor, but you can use sharp or regular cheddar.
How To Make
ONE: Wash and then boil potatoes on the stovetop for about 10-15 minutes or until fork tender. Remove from the water and let cool for 20 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
TWO: Using a sharp knife, cut out about 1/4 of the potato from the top and use the knife to carve out some of the flesh, just deep enough to where toppings can be stuffed inside but not too deep to where you cut the bottom of the potato.
THREE: Then, add in all your toppings and finish it off with flakey sea salt.
Tips And Tricks
Boil potatoes until they are fork tender, meaning when you stick a fork in the pot you can easily grab a potato.
Let potatoes cool until you can easily handle them without being too hot. You want them to be warm but not hot so that the fillings don’t melt.
Use a sharp piercing knife to cut out the tops of each potato.
Before cutting out the top, sit the potato down and figure out which side is sits best on, then remove the top.
How To Serve And Store
Serve these Mini Loaded Baked Potatoes with sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, chives and flakey sea salt.

Taste And Texture
These mini loaded baked potatoes taste like a traditional baked potato but better because the ratio of potato to fillings is perfect for every single bite.
