Blooming Potatoes

These Blooming Potatoes are easier than you'd think, and this is a fun presentation for baked potatoes.  And you can garnish them with whatever you like.  Enjoy!

4 medium potatoes
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
Shredded cheese
Cooked and crumbled bacon
Sliced green onions
Ranch dip or sour cream

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Cut slits in the potatoes longways and then across the short side, being careful not to cut all the way through the potato.  Put the potatoes on a sheet pan and carefully pull apart the sections without breaking pieces off of the potato.  Drizzle some olive oil over them and season them with salt and pepper, being sure to get some in the cracks.  Bake the potatoes uncovered for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.  Sprinkle the cheese over the potatoes during the last five minutes to melt the cheese.  Serve the potatoes garnished with bacon, green onions, and sour cream or Ranch dip.
