This is a family favorite side dish that's good any time of year with beef, chicken or pork. Delicious!
Rub potatoes with oil if desired; pierce with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until tender. Allow potatoes to cool to the touch.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, carefully scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell.
Place pulp in a large bowl. Saute onions in 1/4 cup butter until tender. Add to potato pulp along with cream, sour cream, salt and pepper. Beat until smooth. Fold in cheese and bacon.
Stuff potato shells and place in a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Melt
remaining butter; drizzle over the potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through and slightly browned on top.
For variation, I have used 1/2 cup diced lean ham in place of the bacon.
Note: Potatoes may be stuffed ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen. Allow additional time for reheating.

Kym1 2y agoI love these i make them almost everytime i make potatoes
Jenstarling 2y agoYum. Do make extra and freeze for a later quick meal. You can reduce calories and fat by skipping the optional butter and replacing the sour cream and half & half with fat free yogurt and milk.

infinityyy 3y agoThis was good but I did make a few changes. I started by rubbing in olive oil and salt. I didnt have any scallions so I sauted some yellow onions. I had no bacon but I did use real bacon bits. I also didnt have sour cream but used cream cheese (which I already use in my mashes potatoes) instead. Both my boyfriend and I really enjoyed them. I will use this recipe in the future
deester 3y agoI am a beginner cook and made these last night. My husband loved them as did I. He said they were his new favorite food and it was as if he was eating in a restaurant.
