This is a good dish to accompany other vegetables for a great meal.
7 Large Baking Potatoes
1/2 Cup (1 Stick) Butter of Margarine, softened
2 Cups (8 Ounces) Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Cups Sour Cream
2 Ounces Bacon Bits
10 Green Onions, Chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wrap the potatoes in foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 2 hours or until soft. Remove to a wire rack and let cool. Slice off the top one fourth of the potatoes lengthwise. Scoop out the potato pull into a bowl, keeping the shells intact. Mash the potatoes. Add the next 5 ingredients.
Season with salt and pepper. Mix until no lumps remain. Fill 6 of the potato shells with the potato mixture and discard the remaining shell. Sprinkle with paprika and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until heated through. Serves 6.
