Stuffed Baked PEI Potatoes with PEI Lobster

from Tourism PEI 


4 PEI potatoes

½ cup Cheddar cheese, grated

2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes

2 slices bacon, fried and crumbled

herbs – dill, chives, thyme

½ cup PEI lobster meat, cooked

2 tbsp butter

¼ cup milk

1 cup sour cream

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scrub potatoes and prick with fork. Bake approximately 1 hour until tender. Cut in half and scoop out cooked potato, reserving skins. Mix together with remaining ingredients. Spoon into shells and bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 4 servings.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks: This was a big hit at our house – the perfect side for any meat or as a main for lunch with a Caesar salad. While the potatoes were baking, I melted butter in a pot, on the lowest heat setting, and added the lobster to warm the meat and absorb the butter. Not crazy about lobster? Try crab or shrimp.
