This is a nice spin on a loaded classic favorite. When the baked potato skin gets left uneaten, then most of the nutrients get tossed. Flavor it up a bit. You'll love it!

  • Toss potatoes with oil in a large bowl until well coated. Add garlic salt, chili powder, and pepper and continue to toss until spices are evenly distributed.

  • Place potatoes directly on the center rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking until a toothpick inserted in the center of a potato offers little resistance, about 40 minutes more.

  • Slice each baked potato lengthwise down the center, add sour cream, green onions, Cheddar cheese, and bacon. Serve piping hot.

We make these a lot - - even in the summer when I use my turkey roaster out on the back patio. I always use real butter and we like taco meat inside out potatoes but I don't add it until after they've baked a while and are soft enough to cut into and then spoon in the meat and let it heat through. When we're ready to eat them we add the sour cream and chopped green onions etc. We generally eat these as a "stand alone" meal. Nothing else with it except a cool tall glass of lemonade iced tea or filtered water with fruit added for flavor. That's it. It's a filling and great meal even for men with big appetites (they eat two usually). Read More
