Ingredients

  • 4 large baking potatoes, baked

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

  • teaspoon pepper

  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 4 green onions, sliced

Directions

  1. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (save pulp for another use). Place potatoes skins on a greased baking sheet. Combine oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper; brush over both sides of skins. Bake at 475 degrees F for 7 minutes; turn. Bake until crisp, about 7 minutes more. Sprinkle bacon and cheddar cheese inside skins. Bake 2 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and onions. Serve immediately.
