  1. Scrub the potatoes clean and pat completely dry.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce each potato twice with a fork and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour.
  3. Slice each cooked potato in half and use a paring knife to cut a rim around the edge. Use a spoon to scoop out the middle, leaving about 1/3 inch of potato on top of the skins.
  4. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the potato layer over the skin. If desired, melt a small amount of butter over the top to make it creamier.
  5. Place the potatoes back on the baking sheet, skin-side-up. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Flip the potatoes over. Bake skin-side-down for 10 more minutes.
  7. Top the potatoes with the shredded cheddar and bacon.
  8. Bake for 5 more minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  9. Sprinkle with diced green onions and Sharp Cheddar Veggie Season’s and serve with sour cream.
