Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Rub the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Prick in several spots with a fork and place on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until soft throughout. Remove from the oven and cool. Slice each potato in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the flesh and put into a mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes with a fork and stir in the bacon bits, cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives. Season well with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Spoon mashed potato mixture into the potato skins and return to the baking tray. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and smoked paprika. Reduce oven temperature to 400 F (200 C) and bake about 30 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned and heated through.
