Heat the oven to 350°F.
Arrange the potatoes in their skin on a baking sheet with space around them and place the tray in the oven. Let the potatoes bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the size of your potatoes.)
While the potatoes are baking, fry the bacon until crispy, then chop up and set aside.
Take the potatoes out of the oven when they’re golden brown and completely soft inside. Allow them to cool just enough to handle them, and then peel the potato skins off of 6 potatoes. Leave the skin on the last two for some variety and texture.
