Stuffed BBQ Potatoes – Kid-Friendly Version!

/ /

If you live in the South, you know what a stuffed BBQ potato is. Yep. If you don’t, well you’re just missing out and you definitely need to make this recipe!  Ha!

We (speaking of Southerners) all love going down to the closest BBQ restaurant and ordering a stuffed potato. My favorite is stuffed turkey potato. Yum! Around these parts our BBQ is made with a vinegar white sauce rather than a tomato based sauce. Anyway, it’s pretty much amazing.

My Mom created a quick and easy way to make “stuffed potatoes” at home for a fraction of the cost of restaurant potatoes – usually between $6-$7!  Not to mention that they are SO much easier to eat! My sister and I have carried on this tradition in our homes!


Stuffed BBQ Potatoes

  • 5 lbs Russet Potatoes, cubed, cooked
  • Pulled BBQ (turkey, pork or beef)
  • Sour Cream, Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Medium onion, chopped
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Real Bacon Bits
  • Parsley
  • BBQ Sauce – My Hubs loves Sweet Baby Rays!

Coarsely mash potatoes, leave plain.  Serve with pulled BBQ and toppings.  Each person gets to build their own “stuffed BBQ potato” on their own plate.  Enjoy!

Note: 5 lbs potatoes will comfortably serve 6-8 people. I usually serve stuffed potatoes with baby carrots or a lettuce salad.
