Bake potatoes in the oven at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until soft. Cut each potato in half and scoop out pulp of the potato. Reserve the pulp to use in some other recipe like mashed potatoes or baked potato soup. Brush inside of each potato jacket with olive oil and sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper. Return to the oven for 10 - 15 minutes to brown inside of the potato. Remove potatoes from the oven and spread the mixture of cheeses, bacon and scallions around the inside of each jacket. Place in the oven one final time to melt cheeses. Serve with sour cream

The Skinny: Use low fat cheese, turkey bacon and light sour cream.
