My kids loved it!! SO simple to whip up after a hard slog of a day, once its in the oven you can all-but forget about it untill the timer goes off. We didnt put them back in the oven as the Spuds held enough heat to melt the cheese and we didnt risk any burns to little mouths.

  5. Allow to cool slightly.
  6. Meanwhile, fry or microwave bacon until crisp.
  7. Remove the flesh from the potatoes.
