  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'm giving it 5 stars b/c it sounds so good, but I need to ask a couple of questions and can't submit them until I give it a rating. :) Has anyone tried making this ahead of time and refrigerating it? Also, has anyone tried doubling it? Thanks"

"Have not tried this recipe yet but definitely just the ingredients deserves 5 stars. I just added it in my Christmas Eve dinner folder. Does anyone know if this can be frozen ahead of time? I will have a house full of people for several days and I'm trying to eliminate lots of prep work. Thanks!"
