    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 baking potatoes (medium is fine)
    • 473.18 ml shredded cheddar cheese (regular or light)
    • 118.29 ml sour cream (regular, light or even fat-free)
    • 14.79-29.58 ml minced fresh chives or 14.79-29.58 ml minced green onion
    • 59.14 ml butter, melted (or use a substitute)
    • 8 slice bacon, sauteed,drained and crumbled (you can use imitation bits or try the 50% leaner bacon bits)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425.
    2. 2
      Wash and dry potatoes.
    3. 3
      Prick in several places and bake for 45 minutes to one hour, until baked through.
    4. 4
      Let cool enough to handle.
    5. 5
      While they are cooling, mix the chives with the sour cream and set aside.
    6. 6
      Make 2 lengthwise cuts through each potato.
    7. 7
      You'll wind up with three slices.
    8. 8
      Discard the middle and save for other potato dishes.
    9. 9
      This gives you two nice sized potato skins for each potato.
    10. 10
      Scoop out some of the potato from each skin, but leave about 1/4" of the potato inside the skin so it doesn't collapse.
    11. 11
      Brush with some melted butter (yes, you can use Canola, too).
    12. 12
      Place on a cookie sheet, skin side up and run under broiler for about 5 minutes, just until edges begin to turn brown.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle the cheese among the 8 skins.
    14. 14
      Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it on top of the cheese.
    15. 15
      Broil for about 2 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
    16. 16
      Serve hot, arranged on a plate surrounded by sour cream chive dip.
    17. 17
      Other Good Toppings: Don't stop here.
    18. 18
      Think of your own likes- salsa, green onions, chopped tomatoes, guacamole, etc.

      This is great! I had bought Friday's potato skins and looked at the label. 4 skins = 5 servings? Weird! If you eat the box, get ready to work off 1,100 calories!!!!

      These were wonderful!! Very easy to whip up. I tripled the recipe and it worked out great. There were no leftovers. Now, all that I need to do is copy the recipe for everyone. :) Thanks so much for posting!!
