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.

dallasdangerAbsolutely delicious!!! So easy to make and sooooo yummy!3y ago
Kym1I love these i make them almost everytime i make potatoes3y ago
JenstarlingYum. 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.3y ago
promise_lorgeThis was very good! The whole family loved it! Next time I want to make a whole bunch & have them for many days after!3y ago
infinityyyThis 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 future4y ago
deesterI 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.4y ago
