  • 4 medium russet potatoes, washed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream

  • 1

    Prick the potatoes and microwave for 12-14 minutes. Let the potatoes cool down enough so that you can touch them.

  • 2

    Meanwhile, mix the sour cream with the chives. Place the mixture in a covered container in your refrigerator.

  • 3

    When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, make 2 length-wise cuts through each potato, resulting in three 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices. Discard the middle slice or save them for a separate dish of mashed potatoes. This will leave you with two potato skins per potato.

  • 4

    With a spoon, scoop some of the potato out of each skin, being sure to leave about 1/4 inch of potato inside of the skin.

  • 5

    Brush the entire surface of each potato skin, inside and outside, with the melted butter.

  • 6

    Place the skins on a cookie sheet, cut side up, and broil them for 6 to 8 minutes or until the edges begin to turn dark brown.

  • 7

    Sprinkle 2 to 3 tablespoons of Cheddar cheese and 1 to 2 teaspoons of the bacon pieces onto the cheese.

  • 8

    Broil the skins for 2 more minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted.

    I made these today as a pre-game snack and they were AWESOME! Best replication to resturants' version (used green onions instead of chives and Baco's b/c vegetarian). Have been looking and not finding anything as good as this. Thanks, so much!
