  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl; add 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss to coat. Heat in the microwave until potatoes are tender enough to easily poke with a fork, about 6 minutes. Cool until easily handled.
  4. Slice potatoes in half and scoop filling into a bowl. Set potato skins aside.
  5. Mash garlic, potato filling, Gouda cheese, onion powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Fill potato skins with potato mixture and sandwich the potato halves together. Wrap a bacon slice around each filled potato and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is cooked and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes.
