Instructions
  1. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Rub potatoes thoroughly with the olive oil and coat with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper. Place potatoes baking sheet. Bake about 1 hour until tender. Let the potatoes sit until cool enough to handle.
  3. In a medium skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally the fat is rendered and bacon is crisp. This should take about 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Take one potato and remove the skin. Place the potato pulp in a large bowl. Cut one quarter from the top of each of the remaining potatoes. Using a large spoon, scoop the pulp into the bowl, leaving a 1/4-inch layer of pulp on the skin. Place the potato shells back on the baking sheet.
  5. Mash the potato pulp until smooth using a potato masher. Add 1 cup of the cheese, butter, bacon, the sour cream, chives, and the remaining salt and pepper. Mash until smooth. Spoon the potato mixture into the potato shells. Top each potato with the remaining cheese and bake until hot and the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
  6. Optional: Garnish with a sprig of parsley, more bacon bits or chives.

Simple Clean Eating Recipes

Simple Clean Eating RecipesClean eating is about eating more of the best and healthiest options in each of the food groups—and eating less of the not-so-healthy ones. That means embracing whole foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, plus healthy proteins and fats. It also means cutting back on refined grains, pesticides, additives, preservatives, unhealthy fats and large amounts of sugar and salt. And avoiding highly refined foods with ingredients you’d need a lab technician to help you pronounce. Even if you only take a few steps toward eating cleaner—cutting back on processed foods, for example, or eating more organic fruits and veggies — it can still make a huge impact on your health.

Discover over 50 delicious recipes in Simple Clean Eating Recipes that help you be clean with your food habits.
