1 head garlic
1 tsp. oil
4 large baking potatoes (2-1/2 lb.)
1 cup BREAKSTONE'S Sour Cream
1/2 lb. (8 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, divided
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked, crumbled
Cut thin slice off top of garlic; discard top. Place garlic on sheet of foil; drizzle with oil. Wrap loosely with foil. Prick potatoes in several places with fork. Bake potatoes and garlic 1 hour.
Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF. Cut small slice off both ends of each potato. Cut potatoes horizontally in half. Scoop out centers, leaving 1/8-inch-thick shells. Place potato flesh in medium bowl; mash. Squeeze garlic out of papery shell into bowl with potatoes. Add sour cream, 3/4 of the VELVEETA and Parmesan; beat until fluffy. Spoon into shells, mounding filling as necessary; place in shallow baking dish.
Bake 30 min.; top with remaining VELVEETA. Bake 5 min. or until melted. Sprinkle with bacon.
A serving of these delicious potatoes makes a great accompaniment to 3 oz. of cooked turkey, chicken or pork and your favorite steamed vegetable.
Substitute 1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese for the VELVEETA, stirring 1-1/4 cups of the Cheddar into the mashed potatoes along with the sour cream and Parmesan, and topping potatoes with the remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar the last 5 min. of the baking time.
Stuff potato shells as directed, but do not top with remaining VELVEETA. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, heat oven to 325ºF. Bake potatoes, uncovered, 45 min.; top with remaining VELVEETA. Bake 5 min. or until VELVEETA is melted. Sprinkle with bacon.
