BBQ POTATO SKIN POPPERS

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the potatoes on a sheet for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely (until able to handle).

Cut the potato in half. Use a melon baller to remove a small scoop of potato from the center. Cut a small piece of potato off of the bottom; creating a flat surface which prevents to potato halves from rolling.

Combine EVOO and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush the EVOO mixture over the hallowed potato halves. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.

Return potatoes to the oven for about 8 minutes.

Remove from oven.  Drop equal amounts of BBQ sauce in each potato. Top with bacon and then with shredded cheese. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese in melted.

Drizzle an additional tablespoon of BBQ sauce on top of melted cheese. Finish with chives and serve along with FAT FREE sour cream.
