Introduction: Volcano Potato

This is a filling entrée. Very simple to make, just takes a little time. You will need a potato, block or stick cheese, bacon, hot sauce, sour cream, and barbecue sauce for the food. You will need a fork, microwave, knife, cutting board, scooper, toothpicks, baking sheet, oven, and a brush to cook and prepare. You would want to preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 1: Wash

Here you will wash your potato to get the dirt off. Then you will poke holes with a fork as if you were making a baked potato.

Step 2: Microwave

Here you will microwave the potato half as long as if you were making a baked potato. This softens the potato for upcoming steps.

Step 3: Cutting

Here you will cut a bigger piece off for the top. Then you will barely cut the bottom so that the potato can stand up. Then you will make a hole in the center of the potato for the cheese.

Step 4: Cheese

Here you will cut the cheese block, if that's what you are using, it fit into the hole.
If you use a cheese stick then you will just cut it in half.
Then you will put the cheese into the hole you made in the previous step.

Step 5: Bacon

Here you will wrap the potato with bacon. I had to use two strips on my potato. Once you have it wrapped, you with put toothpicks around the potato to keep the bacon on.

Step 6: Oven

In the intro, I said to preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. So you will bake the potato for thirty (30) minutes.

Step 7: Sauce

While the potato is being baked, you will want to make the sauce. You will need sour cream and hot sauce. You will put as much hot sauce as you would want and then you would stir it until evenly mixed.

Step 8: Barbecue

Once it has baked for thirty (30) minutes, you will take it out and rub/brush the barbecue sauce all over the potato. Once that is finished, you will keep the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and place it in the oven. You will let it bake for fifteen (15) minutes.

Step 9: Ready!

Here you will remove the toothpicks from the potato. Then you will dump the sauce you made on top. Then it is time to eat! Cut it open and see the cheese flow.
