Baking Potatoes Unsalted Butter Sea Salt Dried Parsley Garlic Powder Cheddar Cheese Bacon Bits Sour Cream
Scrub, dry and poke each potato. Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes then allow potatoes to cool. Cut in half and spoon out almost all the inside leaving about ¼ - ½ inch border along the skin.
Place the hollowed-out skins back on the baking sheet, inside up. Add sea salt, dried parsley and garlic powder to melted butter and brush all over the potatoes.
Bake for another 10-15 minutes, face down. Flip potatoes over and fill each one evenly with cheese and bacon. Bake for another 2-3 minutes to fully melt the cheese, if needed.
Remove from oven and top each with a dollop of sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with green onions or chives.
