Course Easy


  • Baked Potatoes 1 potato = 2 potato skins bake as many as you want to eat
  • 6 strips of cooked bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3 or 4 green onions sliced
  • Grated cheese I like a cheddar mix
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sour cream- optional


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Once potatoes are cooled- cut potatoes length-wise so you have two long halves.
  • You want a thin edge around the whole potato. So, 1/4"-1/2" from edge of potato score with a knife where you want to scoop out the middle of the potato. Be careful to not go through the potato skin.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out the middle of the potato, leaving 1/4-1/2" of potato on the skin. Be careful to not scoop away the bottom of your potato.
  • Place the potato skins on a baking sheet.
  • I like a lot of cheese so we fill the middles up with lots of cheese!
  • Sprinkle crumbled bacon and onion slices on top of cheese
  • Bake for 5-7 min or until cheese is melted. (May need to cook longer if potatoes have been in refrigerator.)
  • Top with sour cream and salt and pepper
