  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk (more can be added if needed)
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 green onions sliced, divided


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour until they can be pierced with a fork easily. Or microwave according to your microwave settings.
  • Allow cooling for 10 minutes.
  • Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl leaving about 1/4 inches of flesh so the potato maintains its shape.
  • Add sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese, 1/2 the green onions, and milk to the scooped out potatoes. Smash together with a fork until incorporated.
  • Spoon the mixture into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheese and bacon.
  • Bake for another 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Top remaining green onions to serve.
