  1. Bake potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes; turn over and bake another 5-8 minutes until baked through (test with a toothpick). Set aside to cool.
  2. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl; add water; beat a little more. Add eggs to skillet and scramble until done. Set aside.
  4. Once potatoes have cooled enough to be handled, cut them lengthwise and scoop out the pulp, leaving about 1/4 inch layer of pulp in the skins; discard pulp (or save/use for something else).
  5. Place skins upside down (skin side up) on a greased baking sheet.
  6. Combine oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl; brush all over each skin.
  7. Bake at 475 degrees for about 8 minutes; remove baked skins from oven.
  8. Turn the skins over and fill each one with scrambled eggs and sprinkle cheese on top.
  9. Return to oven long enough to melt the cheese, about 1 minute.
  10. Remove from oven and add salsa, sour cream, bacon and green onions, or whatever other toppings you like. (Add the salsa first and then the sour cream so that other toppings will 'stick to the sour cream.).
