Directions

  • Ready In

  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.

I used the non fat milk and some greek yogurt instead of the low fat sour cream. Cut the amount of cheese way back. For the bacon I cooked cooked 2 strips of bacon and crumbled that on the top. They weren't as cheesy but still delicious.

I reduced light sour cream by half, so I could have some light butter & used 2% Cheddar cheese. Yum. Might use turkey bacon, next time.

Great taste.... kinda a lot of work for potatoes in my opinion.... it's pretty messy to scoop all the filling back into the potatoe peel.... they did have great flavor though. I will not make these for my kids again ( they do not appreciate the work required ) I will make them again for adult only dinners.
