Ingredients

4          russet potatoes, cleaned well


2          tablespoons unsalted melted butter, kept warm


            sea or kosher salt, to taste


            freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1          cup shredded Cheddar


4          slices bacon, cooked and crumbled


            sour cream, to taste


2          tablespoons chopped chives


Instructions

1.   Preheat the Compact Toaster Oven Broiler set to Bake at 350°F with the rack in position A for 5 minutes.


2.   Prick the potatoes with the tines of a fork on all sides. Place the potatoes directly on the rack and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 60 minutes.


3.   Remove potatoes and let rest until cool enough to handle.
Increase temperature to 425°F.


4.   Halve potatoes lengthwise and scoop out flesh, leaving a ¼-inch shell.


5.   Brush both sides of the potato halves with the melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the halves on the foil-lined baking pan.


6.   Evenly distribute the cheese on top of each half, and then top with the bacon.


7.   Bake skins for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.


8.   Remove and with a sharp knife halve each skin to make a total of 16 wedges. Top with the sour cream and chopped chives. Serve immediately.
