  • 12 oz bacon, chopped
  • 4 medium baking potatoes, well scrubbed
  • 8 oz sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon green peppercorns, drenched in cold water
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1 cup cream
  • butter, for topping




Preheat the oven to 375°. Prick potatoes with a fork and bake until soft, about 1 hour.


Sauté bacon, add button mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Pour brandy first into a measuring cup (for safety) and then into the pan and carefully ignite with a long match. After the alcohol burns off and the flame has died, stir in the peppercorns. Stir in the cream and heat through, without boiling. Salt and pepper to taste.


Cut open baked potatoes. Top each with a spoonful of butter, then cover generously with sauce.

This recipie is

This recipie is easy and VERY delicious!!! The brandy in the cream makes it. I've made this so many times over the years. Sometimes I'll throw in some chicken to make it a rounded meal. Great to feed a lot of people on the cheap too. Wish this episode was on the subscription, but it's certainly easy enough to make without watching.
