  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Bake 45-60 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; reduce oven setting to 350°.
  2. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp and place in a large bowl; discard shells. Mash pulp with butter; stir in sour cream, milk, salt and pepper.
  3. Reserve 1/4 cup crumbled bacon for topping. Gently fold remaining bacon, 1 cup cheese and half of the green onions into potato mixture (do not overmix).
  4. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese and green onions; sprinkle with reserved bacon. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Yield: 12 servings (2/3 cup each).

"I made this for a family gathering. 4 generations of guests-some picky eaters- and everyone loved it. I didn't have any leftovers. Definitely a keeper."

"Made this casserole a day ahead for Christmas dinner.... 1.5 times the recipe as someone suggested and started out with mashed potatoes instead of baking them and it turned out amazing! It was such a hit, my mashed potatoes that I made (just in case), barely got touched! I will DEFINITELY BE making this again and again. Thanks for the delicious recipe."
