Bacon, Mushroom and Brie Potatoes

This is one good baked potato!  You need to add this to your menu the next time you want to serve something special.

6 medium potatoes (scrubbed)
6 tsp olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
10 bacon strips (chopped)
1/2 lb sliced baby portobello mushrooms
6 oz Brie cheese (sliced)
Chive Gremolata (see recipe posted previously)

Scrub and pierce potatoes.  Rub potato skins with oil; sprinkle with salt.  Bake at 400 degrees for 50 - 60 minutes or until tender.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.  Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 Tbsp drippings.  Saute mushrooms in the drippings.

Cut a 2" X in tops of potatoes; insert cheese slices.  Top with mushrooms, bacon, and Chive Gremolata.
