Baked Potatoes with Onion Sour Cream

Source: Everyday Food, June 2006


  • 8 medium baking potatoes, about 8 ounces each, scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick potatoes in several places with a fork. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until easily pierced with the tip of a knife, 50 to 60 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, make onion sour cream: In a 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl; cool to room temperature.

  3. Add sour cream to onion; mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Cut a deep cross in the top of each potato; push ends together to open. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon some onion sour cream over each potato, and sprinkle with chives. Serve.

    MAKE THIS RECIPE!!! It sounds so simple, but the onions get soft and sweet and it elevates a plain baker to new heights. Love it.
