COMBINE:

A microwave makes quick work of cooking these "twice baked" potatoes, which are then hollowed out, refilled, and grilled to crisp perfection.

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Pierce each potato multiple times with a fork or paring knife. Microwave potatoes until they give when squeezed, 8–10 minutes. Allow potatoes to cool until easily handled.

Cook bacon in a sauté pan until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate and reserve drippings.

Slice off the top third of each potato. Scoop flesh from each potato with a teaspoon measure or melon baller, leaving about 18-inch flesh inside.

Combine scooped out flesh with sour cream, ranch powder, Cheddar, and bacon; season with pepper.

Brush the insides and skins of potatoes with reserved drippings. Scoop potato mixture back into potatoes.

Grill potatoes until skins are crisp and Cheddar in filling melts. Sprinkle chives over potatoes.
