Picture Version: slice (not all the way through) and place wedge of cheese in-between each slice – cover with ranch – cover with cheese and pieces of bacon – bake 350 for 35 minutes – served topped with sour cream

Grill Version: slice (not all the way through) and place wedge of onion in-between each slice – add bacon pieces and squish cheese into each slice – wrap with foil tightly and grill for about 25 minutes or until the potato feels squishy which indicates it is soft – add cheese and sour cream to the top
