Twice Baked Potatoes are always the first side dish to go at BBQs and potlucks. Who doesn't love a twice baked potato? And you can make them ahead of time. These have creamy sour cream and butter mashed potatoes topped with cheesy, bacon, and green onions.
When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl leaving about 1/4 inch of flesh so the potato maintains it's shape; save skins. To the potato flesh add sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese, 1/2 the green onions, and milk (start adding 1/2 cup of milk but you may not need to add it all depending on the consistency you want. You don't want them too runny). Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins and place on a baking sheet. Top each with remaining cheese and bacon. If making ahead of time, refrigerate here.
Bake for another 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Add 10 minutes if you refrigerated ahead of time. Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
