4-6 medium-sized potatoes

American or cheddar cheese, grated

bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled

Note: Don’t use artificial bacon bits. It just doesn’t taste right.

Recipe Directions

  2. Remove potatoes from the oven, cut lengthwise, and scoop out the potato, leaving a little in the shell.

  3. Add a thick layer of cheese.

  4. Top it off with crumbled bacon pieces.

  5. Cook for a few minutes under the broiler, until the cheese has thoroughly melted.
