- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. Place the potatoes on a large microwaveable plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave on high power for 5 minutes. Carefully turn the potatoes and microwave for 5 minutes longer, or until a fork can be inserted easily. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, halve them lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out most of the insides, leaving enough potato flesh to keep the skins intact. Place the skins on the prepared baking sheet and the scooped potato into a large bowl. Add the milk, cheese, butter, bacon bits, and salt to the scooped potato and stir well to combine, then spoon equal amounts back into the skins.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are heated through and the cheese is melted.
