Ingredients

  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 12 tablespoons Sour cream
  • 9 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 400°F
  • Bake potatoes until soft. You can prebake by putting in the microwave for 5 minutes to speed up cooking time.
  • When potatoes are done, remove from oven and let cool for about an hour.
  • Lower oven to 375°F.
  • While potatoes are cooling, fry the bacon. (This can also be broiled, or microwaved).
  • Cut baked potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out centers, leaving 1/4-inch thick shells (reserve centers for another use).
  • Place shells, cut side up, on a baking sheet; spray with no-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and crisp. Divide cheese evenly between potatoes; broil until cheese is bubbly and melted, about 2 minutes.
  • Top each potato shell with a dollop of sour cream, crumbled bacon, and green onion slices.
  • 12 potato halves
