  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes, and allow to cool to room temperature. Dice once cooled.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow to cool, and crumble the bacon into a large bowl.
  3. Place the cooled potatoes into the bowl with the bacon, and mix in the sour cream, mayonnaise, Cheddar cheese, chives, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate overnight before serving.

I made this for my husband's birthday party and it was a winner! I substituted the chives with green onion. I also used the whole pack of thick cut bacon. With extra sharp cheddar, it was a deli...

Fantastic!! The little bit of mayo that went into this was the perfect touch for the sour cream. Great flavors. Update since my first review. I roasted the potatoes this time, and it was an e...

We LOVE this and the beauty of it is that it really does taste like a loaded baked potato! I also add in some green onions for an extra kick and usualy don't measure the mayo, but use it to tast...
