If you love mac and cheese, baked potatoes and all things carbs, this is the post for you! It’s #NationalPotatoDay and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate then by sharing the most amazing, carb filled, baked potato goodness that’s come out of my kitchen in a while.
We’ve been going low carb around here and a Loaded Mac and Cheese Stuffed Baked Potato just doesn’t go well with that type of meal planning haha. However, when Valentina from The Baking Fairy reached to see if I wanted to make a recipe for #NationalPotatoDay with a group of other spud loving bloggers I said YES and started on a plan!
That plan ended up creating these glorious stuffed baked potatoes!
Here’s how to make them:
What you’ll need for Loaded Mac and Cheese Stuffed Baked Potatoes :
- Baked Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Seasoning salt
- Mac and Cheese (my recipe below)
- sour cream
- Bacon Bits
- Dried Parsley (optional)
- & any other potato toppings you love
Perfect Baked Potato Tip:
Want your baked potatoes to look like the nice fully bowl shaped potatoes that restaurants serve?
- Remove potatoes from oven and let sit until cool enough to touch.
- Slice potatoes lengthwise, halfway through and use the palms of your hands to push the ends of the potato towards the center to open the potato.
- Fluff inside of potato with a fork.
What kind of mac and cheese do I use for Loaded Mac and Cheese Stuffed Baked Potatoes?
I’m not going to be picky about this with y’all.
You can use any kind of mac and cheese that you want. I have a recipe below for a tasty stove stop mac and cheese that I made for these stuffed baked potatoes that you should totally try. However, I’m not going to tell you not to use your boxed mac and cheese if that’s what you love 🙂
- Can I use boxed mac and cheese?
heck yes you can 🙂

Anything you want 🙂 Chili, more cheese, broccoli, chicken… anything haha
