DIRECTIONS

  • Clean un-peeled potatoes under water to remove any dirt.
  • Poke them all over with a fork to vent while cooking.
  • Rub vegetable oil on potatoes and season with salt.
  • Microwave for 5 minutes, turn potatoes over, and microwave for an additional 5 minutes.
  • While potatoes are cooking, cut across bacon and then lengthwise to create small bits. ( I use frozen bacon) Cook in a skillet until crispy and set aside.
  • Allow the potatoes to cool until you can handle them.
  • Make a slice lengthwise on each potato and use a fork to mash the insides. ( Doesn't have to be perfect).
  • Top potatoes with shredded cheddar cheese and put back in the microwave for 1 minute or until cheese is melted.
  • Top with bacon bits.
