Served at the 2014 Say Cheese Wine Trail
4 large russet baking potatoes
8 slices bacon
1 cup sour cream
4 oz. cream cheese
½ cup half ‘n half (or milk)
4 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour (more if very large). Meanwhile, fry bacon until evenly brown, drain, crumble and set aside.
Remove potatoes from oven when done, and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Slice potatoes lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl, set skins aside. To the potato flesh, add sour cream, cream cheese, half and half, butter, salt, pepper, ½ of the cheddar cheese, half of the bacon and ½ of the green onions. Mix well. Spoon into potato skins and top with remainder of cheese, green onions and bacon. Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes.
