Loved this! I never thought of adding bacon. I liked that no one knew where that flavor came from. It wasn't over powering. Easy and perfect.

The bacon & onion does make this a special baked potato. The skin was crisp and the flesh moist. I used cottage cheese instead of sour cream Thanks kimberlie14 for another addition to my "keep" file
