  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 cup bacon bits
  • 1 (16 ounce) package sour cream


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork. Microwave the potatoes on HIGH until they are soft; approximately 10 to 12 minutes.

  5. Drain potatoes on paper towels.

  7. Bake for 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  8. Serve hot with sour cream.
