This recipe makes a great alternative to sour cream and bacon toppers bakers. Recipe Courtesy of Paula Deen.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Scrub potatoes and bake in your prefered method until soft, about 1 hour.
Saute 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.
