My version of a potato skin. Perfect comfort food and great for a late night snack. Definitely not healthy, but I'm sure substitutions can be made such as margarine, low fat cheese, low fat or fat free sour cream and omitting the bacon.

I had some leftover baked potatoes, so I made this recipe with substitutions. I didn't have any milk so I used sour cream instead, used cajun seasoning instead of steak seasoning, because I didn't have any. These were great. Will make again.
