Microwave Potato Skins

This is a super easy, yummy, and fun snack to make for the "big game" on Sunday. Hope your families enjoy them as much as mine!

4 medium sized potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
4 pieces of bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream for dipping

Wash potatoes very good. Prick each potato several time with a fork. Place potatoes in microwave at least an inch apart and cook on high 4-6 minutes or until slightly firm, turning in two minute increments. Set aside to cool. Place bacon on a plate between two paper towels, microwave for 2-4 minutes, rotating every minute, until crispy. Cut each potato in half and scoop out the centers leaving about a ¼ inch boarder. Place the potato centers into a small bowl. Once all the potatoes are scooped, mash the centers with butter until smooth (add a little milk too if desired), salt to taste. Arrange skins on a plate. Place filling back into skins making them level. Top each with cheese pressing into the filling slightly. Crumble bacon and sprinkle on top. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream for dipping. (You can also broil them to melt the cheese if doing a larger quantity). ENJOY!
