Preheat oven to 400. Wash, dry, and poke potatoes with a fork on both sides. Roll in olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in the oven for 45 mins to 1 hour until a fork easily penetrates through the potato. There may be a little smoke…thats no biggie. It’s worth the crispy outside!

Take potatoes out and let cool slightly. Slice in half. Scoop out the inside of the potato being careful not to go through the skin (A grapefruit spoon works great here). Put the “potato whites” in a bowl.

Add sour cream, butter, cheese, salt and pepper and beat well.

Because the potatoes are still warm everything will melt nicely together like so.

Turn down the oven to 350. Place your potato skins on a baking sheet (I line mine for easy clean-up), put potato filling inside, top with remaining cheese and cooked bacon. Bake for another 20 mins until bubbly.

  1. Oh my word!! I haven’t made these potatoes for ages, but you sure made me hungry reading this!!! 😉
    When I don’t have sour cream, I’ve even made them with plain yoghurt – just as yummy!

  2. This recipe sounds delicious. Just a bit more work than I care for but I am still going to make it! Thanx for recipe and directions. Stay blessed:)
