Ingredients

  • 4 large baking potatoes

  • 8 slices bacon

  • 1 cup light sour cream

  • ½ cup nonfat milk

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 4 green onions, sliced

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 4 green onions, sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Bake potatoes in preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Do not turn off oven.

  3. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

  4. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop flesh into a large bowl; save skins. Mix in sour cream, milk, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, and half the green onions into potato flesh. Blend with a hand mixer until creamy. Spoon potato mixture into potato skins. Top each with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, 4 sliced green onions, and bacon.

  5. Bake in oven until filling is hot and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
