Delicious stuffed twice-baked potatoes with bacon are a meal in themselves! They are also a great side to main courses like steak, shrimp, grilled chicken, or ham.
They have just the right amount of bacon, green onions, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. This recipe makes ten potato halves but can easily be doubled if you want to bring them to a party or you just want extras to freeze for later.
Also, depending on the size of your potatoes, you may need more or less than one hour of baking time. If you need to speed up the baking time, poke holes in each potato with a fork and microwave the whole potatoes for five minutes on each side. Then follow up by coating with olive oil and salt and letting them finish baking in the oven.
