This is a sponsored post in partnership with the Idaho Potato Commission. 

I’m teaming up with Virtual Potluck  and the Idaho Potato Commission to share kid-friendly recipes featuring Idaho® potatoes.

Baked potatoes are one of my very favorite foods and twice baked potatoes are even better.  I do make them pretty often because the whole family loves them and they make any dinner something wonderful.

 I took the twice baked potato to epic proportions with these Bacon Cheese Burger Twice Baked Idaho Potatoes!  The guys were actually still talking about them the next day.  This is definitely a new recipe for the dinner rotation.

We love potatoes and enjoy them just about every day. One of our favorites is a Slow Cooker Cheesy Smoked Sausage & Idaho Potato Soup. It’s perfectly comforting and delicious.

How to Make Bacon Cheese Burger Twice Baked Idaho Potatoes

Bacon Cheese Burger Potatoes

I baked the Idaho® Potatoes and prepared a twice baked potato filling with butter, sour cream, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper.  I also cooked a bit of ground beef and fried some bacon! You know I’ve got to have bacon.

I filled the baked potato shells and topped them with the ground beef that I tossed with barbecue sauce.  Sprinkled over the bacon, a little more cheese and a few green onions.  I popped them back in the oven for about 25 minutes and wow, they were so good!

I’m thinking next time of topping these with Easy Onion Strings!

It was extremely filling and along with a green salad and some crusty bread, it is a fine meal for busy weeknights.  You can make the ingredients ahead of time and assemble these twice baked potatoes when you are ready to serve them.

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded Colby-Jack Cheese divided use
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 pound cooked ground beef I seasoned mine with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 green onions sliced


  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Scrub potatoes until clean and dry them.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake one hour or until potatoes are cooked through.
  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly.
  • Lower oven temperature to 375° F.
  • Cut potatoes lengthwise about 3/4 of the way through, leaving them attached on the bottom. Scrape insides of potatoes with a spoon into a large mixing bowl. Add butter, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash together or whip with an electric mixer, depending on your desired texture.
  • Spoon filling into potato shells and place on a baking sheet.
  • Toss ground beef with barbecue sauce and spoon equally over potatoes. Sprinkle each potato with remaining cheese, bacon and green onions.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted.


  1. Wait do u put the ground beef raw on the potato nd then put it to bake the second time or is the ground beef already cooked when u put it in the potato for the second baking? ( sorry if my typing is weird)

  2. I’m excited to try these with the daughter, I’m assuming it’s one tater per person? If you had it with a salad and crusty bread (I’m gonna copy you, it sounds perfect!), one baker-size tater should be enough. I’m excited, THANKS!!
