Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Wash the potatoes and pierce them with a fork.
In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, paprika, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cumin, ginger, and cayenne pepper.
Rub the potatoes with the olive oil then roll in spice mixture. Set aside leftover spice mixture. Place them on a large cookie sheet with a rim. Bake the potatoes for 45 minutes to an hour, or until done. Remove the potatoes from the oven and cut them in half lengthwise. Set aside to cool.
When potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Using a fork, roughly mash the potatoes, leaving some chunks. Stir in mayonnaise, ½ cup sour cream, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, green onion, and reserved spice mixture. Mix until well combined. Spoon the mixture into the potato shells.
Place remaining ¼ cup sour cream in a piping bag or sandwich bag with one corner cut off. Pipe football lines on top of filled and cooled potato skins. Enjoy!
