  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup crispy bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Wash and scrub the potatoes, then pat them dry.
  2. Pierce each potato several times with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking.
  3. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
  4. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  5. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato attached to the skin.
  6. Brush the potato skins with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Place the skins on a baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until they are crispy.
  8. Remove the skins from the oven and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits evenly over each skin.
  9. Return them to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove from the oven, top with sour cream and fresh chives, and serve immediately.
