Potato Skins

I got this recipe from the Your Homebased Mom Blog- who got it from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Blog.

8 slices bacon (I used Hormel Real Bacon Bits.)
8 russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
canola oil
kosher salt
1 1/2 C. grated cheddar cheese
1 C. sour cream
4 green onions, sliced

Preheat the oven to 400 F

Rub the outside of the scrubbed potatoes with canola oil. Place on foil lined baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until the potatoes are fork tender. Let potatoes cool so the are easy to handle. Slice in half lengthwise.

With a spoon or small scoop, scrape out the inner flesh of the potatoes, leaving a small margin of potato in the skins. Brush both sides of the potato skins with canola oil and salt liberally. Place the skins cut side down on the pan and return to the oven. Bake for 7 minutes and then flip the skins over to the other side. Bake for 7 minutes more or until the skins are crispy.

Grate the cheese.

When the skins are crisp, remove them from the oven and sprinkle each with cheese and bacon pieces. Return to the oven just until the cheese melts (2 minutes). Just before serving, spoon sour cream onto each skin and sprinkle with sliced green onion. Serve hot.
