Wash potatoes and clean from any dirt. Place in a pot. Fill with water, covering the potatoes. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat off. Cover and let the potatoes stand for 5-7 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Drain the water and cut potatoes in half. Using a small spoon, scoop out some of the inside of the potatoes, to make some room for the filling. Place in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Bake for 2 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Add the bacon and the remaining cheese. Bake for 2-3 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and the tops look golden.
Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
