  • 6-8 potatoes Russet
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 4-6 slices cooked bacon (chopped/cut up)
  • salt and pepper to tast


  1. Begin by piercing your potatoes with a fork in several places. Bake potatoes for an hour at 400 degrees.

  2. Let cool 10-15 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl combine oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper. Mix well.

  4. Cut potatoes in half and spoon out most of the inside of the potatoes and place in a bowl.
  5. Brush the oil and Parmesan mixture over the tops and bottoms of each potato skin.
  6. Mix in 1 cup or so of cheese, sour cream (you can use more or less to your liking), cut up bacon and salt & pepper with the insides of the potatoes. Mix well.
  7. Spoon mixture back into potato skins. You usually can fill fewer potatoes than you had if you have them filled a little higher than the skins sides (Throw away excess skins). Sprinkle potatoes with cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake at 400 for 16-18 more minutes.
