4 large baking potatoes
3 slices bacon
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
5 chopped green onions, divided
Garlic powder to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake potatoes in preheated oven for about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, cook and crumble bacon into small pieces and set aside.
When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled, slice them in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl; save skins. To the potato flesh add sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder, 1/4 cup cheese and 1/2 the green onions. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Add more milk if the mixture is too thick. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheese, green onions and bacon.
Bake for another 15 minutes.
