Roasted Garlic Twice Baked Potatoes

Ive made about a thousand variations of twice-baked potatoes.  I stumbled across this one and while it's not super original, it sounded delicious.  Although, it was a bit time consuming.  I wouldnt make this on a weeknight because of that but, the outcome seemed totally worth it.

Recipe from Velveeta
Yields 8 servings
300 calories per serving

1 head garlic
1 tsp olive oil
4 large baking potatoes
8 oz part skim Velveeta
1/4 c parmesan cheese, shredded
4 slices turkey bacon

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the top off the head of garlic.
Place garlic on a sheet of foil & drizzle olive oil on top.
Roast garlic for 1 hour.

Poke potatoes with a fork and place in the microwave, two at a time, in the microwave on the potato setting.
When cool enough to handle slice potatoes horizontally.
Scoop out the center, leaving a 1/8 inch edge, & place guts in a large bowl; mash.
Add sour cream, Velveeta, parmesan, bacon, & squeeze in garlic.
Mix well & scoop into each of the shells.
Place shells on a baking sheet & bake for 30 minutes.
