  • 6 large baking potatoes 

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil 

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder 

  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce 

  • 6 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp, chopped

  • 1 medium tomato, diced

  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions 

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 



  • Preheat the oven to 450�F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Scrub the potatoes and prick each several times with a fork. Microwave uncovered on high until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the microwave and place on a wire rack to cool. When cool to the touch, cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of the flesh attached to the skin. (Save the potato flesh for another meal.)

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, chili powder, and hot sauce. Brush the olive oil mixture on the insides of the potato skins. Cut each half of the potato skin in half again crosswise. Place the potatoes onto the baking sheet.

  • In a small bowl, gently mix together the turkey bacon, tomato, and green onions. Fill each potato skin with this mixture and sprinkle each with the cheese.

  • Bake until the cheese is melted and the potato skins are heated through, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
