  • Olive oil or cooking spray

  • Cheddar Cheese

  • Bacon bits or bacon slices cooked crisp & crumbled (about 1/2 slice per potato skin)

  • Green onions

  • Sour cream

  • Instructions

Directions

Wash potatoes well, poke with a fork and microwave until cooked (approx 6 min for 2 potatoes or 8-10 min for 4 potatoes). If you prefer, you can bake them in the oven for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Let potatoes slightly cool, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh leaving just a small bit in the shell. Reserve the flesh another use (I made Loaded Baked Potato Soup with these ones). Cut the skins in 1/2 again (each potato will produce 4 skins). Lightly brush the skin side with olive oil (or spray with cooking spray). Broil about 4" from the heat for 5 minutes or until crispy. Flip the skins over and top the flesh with cheddar cheese (approx 1 tablespoon per skin) and bacon bits. Broil until cheese is melted & bubbly. Top with sour cream and green onions.
