Baked Potato Skins

We made this recipe found on and loved it! Kyle declared that this is the only way he will eat potatoes.

4 large baking potatoes, baked
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream - optional
4 green onions, sliced - optional

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (save pulp for another use). Place potato skins on a parchment covered baking sheet. Combine oil, parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper; brush over both sides of skins. Bake at 475 degrees for 7 minutes; turn. Bake until crisp, about 7 minutes more. Sprinkle cheese and bacon inside skins. Bake 2 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and onions. Serve immediately.
