Potato Skins

These are really simple and very delicious.  I made mine on the grill, but you can easily use your broiler as well.
Potato Skins
4 baked potatoes (Idaho)
vegetable oil
4-6 slices bacon
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
scallions or chives

Once potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half, lengthwise.
Scoop out the insides, leaving about 1/4" of flesh all the way around the skin.
Brush both sides of the potatoes with oil.
Broil each side until slightly crispy.
Spread cheese evenly inside each skin.
Top with bacon.
Place under broiler again just until cheese melts.
Dollop each with sour cream, and arrange chopped scallions or chives on top.
Serve immediately.
