  • 4 large baking potatoes

  • 8 slices bacon

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ½ cup milk

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 8 green onions, sliced, divided


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

  2. Bake potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour, depending on the size of your potatoes. Set potatoes aside until cool enough to handle.

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

  4. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl; save skins. Add sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese, and 1/2 of the green onions to the potato; mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins; top each with remaining cheese, green onions, and bacon.

  5. Return potatoes to the preheated oven and continue baking until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
