6 large baking potatoes
8 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 pound sliced bacon, diced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup 2% milk
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400°. Scrub and pierce potatoes; rub each with 1 teaspoon butter. Place on a baking sheet. Bake 45-50 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In drippings, saute onion until tender; set aside.
When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each and discard. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a small bowl, mash pulp with remaining butter. Stir in milk, egg, salt and pepper. Stir in the cheese, bacon and onion.
Spoon into the potato shells. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
