{Healthy} Baked Potato Skins

  • Gather medium sized bakers potatoes, pierce with a fork and bake until soft. (375 degrees for an hour should do it).
  • Let cool completely and then cut in half (longways).  Scoop as much of the innards as you can whilst still leaving a 'skin'.
  • Fry up a pound of bacon bits (easiest way is to cut the uncooked bacon in strips and then cook).
  • Generously drizzle olive oil over the potato skins (outside and inside) and use pastry brush to coat. *If you are into salt, after you paint the skin of the potato, you could dip it lightly in kosher salt*
  • Put the potato skins back in the oven @ 400 degrees and let bake until you see them getting nice and brown.
  • Remove from oven and fill the boats with shredded cheese of your choice, as well as the cooked and drained bacon bits.
  • Place back in oven for around 4-6 minutes until the cheese is nice and gooey.
Top with sliced green onions and a dollop of sour cream or YoChee.
