  • Scrub potatoes, pat dry and pierce with a fork.
  • Bake at 425 for 55-65 minutes or until soft.
  • While potatoes are baking, cook bacon in a skillet until browned, cool and crumble.
  • In 2 Tbsp of bacon grease, saute onion and green pepper until still tender crisp, then add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are cooked, then set aside.
