"We love these. In fact, everyone loves these! I take them to get-togethers often. They are always the first thing gone from the buffet table. Pre-bake the potatoes so they have time to cool completely before you handle them. Adapted from CrAzYcOoKeR222 at food.com"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Pre-bake potatoes and let cool completely. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Place foil on a rimmed baking sheet.

Step 2

Cut potatoes in half and scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 inch shell. Place on baking sheet. I save the pulp for making potato pancakes.

Step 3

Combine oil, parmesan, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper and brush on potatoes, bottom first, then top. Bake about 8 minutes and turn over. Bake for another 6 minutes or so, then turn right side up.

Step 4

Sprinkle cheddar, bacon and green onions evenly inside skins and bake 2 minutes longer or til cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.
