Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pierce each potato in a couple spots with a fork. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn potatoes over and bake until fork-tender (jumbo potatoes may take up to 1 1/2 hours).

Step 2

Hold the potato with an oven-mit or towel. Slice each potato in half. Carefully scoop out most of the potato into a bowl leaving 1/2-inch of potato (take care to leave enough potato in the skin so the shells stay together). Mash the potato lightly with fork along with butter and sour cream. Stir in green onion and minced bacon and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Step 3

Fill the 8 shells with the potato mixture mounding slightly. Set the potatoes onto baking sheet, and bake 15 minutes. Remove sprinkle tops with cheddar cheese using 1/4 cup for each. Return to oven for another 10 minutes. Best when served right away.

Tips & Variations

I scaled back for one serve and used a medium size potato and cooked in the microwave so I had the whole dish cooked and plated in less than 30 minutes and every mouthful was absolutely delicious, thank you Peppermint_Patty made for Alphabet Tag Game at FF&F.
