Method

Baked Potatoes

  1. Position racks in top and bottom thirds, then preheat your oven to 350F. Use a fork to poke 8 to 12 deep holes all over the spud. Place potato directly onto the middle rack of the oven and position a baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any drippings.
  2. Bake for 1 hour or until the skin feels crisp, but the flesh beneath feels soft. Cut a slit through the spud down towards the middle without cutting all the way through and fluff up the flesh with a fork

Cheesy Sauce

  1. Boil sweet potatoes for 10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Add the potatoes and remaining cheese ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat while stirring. Continue stirring until you have a thick stretchy consistency.

BBQ Black Beans

  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, simmer for 5 minutes and use a fork to squish some of the beans.

Assembling

  1. Put in a ¼ cup of your BBQ Bean into your baked potato. Top off with your cheese sauce, chives, and “bacon” bits. Serve & enjoy!
