Boise Dog: Baked Potato “Bun” w/ Bacon, Sour Cream and Chives

At first glance, this might look like a regular ol’ hot dog set-up, but look again, and you’ll see a fluffy baked potato standing in for the bun.

Instructions

Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. Remove from heat, drain briefly on paper towels, then crumble with your hands or finely chop.

Hot Dogs

  2. Split each potato open and nestle a hot dog inside.
  3. Top with a dollop of sour cream and a scattering of bacon and chopped chives.
