Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash potatoes and poke with a fork a few times. Bake potatoes in oven 1 hour or microwave until soft. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Slice each potato in 1/2 length wise. Scoop out the pulp and mash potatoes, buttermilk, sour cream, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper until smooth.
  4. Stir in chives, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese. Let cool completely.
  5. Wrap 1 1/2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes around each cube of cheese. Roll each biscuit with a rolling pin until big enough to enclose the potato ball. Be sure to seal each biscuit completely to hold the cheese in.
  6. Place seam side down on parchment lined baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
