DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350F and bake the potatoes until fork tender, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. (You can bake the potatoes beforehand).
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Slowly blend in flour with a wire whisk until thoroughly blended. Cook the roux (flour in butter) until a very pale golden. Gradually add milk to the roux, garlic and season to taste, whisking constantly.
  • Cut potatoes in half, scoop out the interior and set aside. Chop up half the potato peels and discard the remainder.
  • When milk mixture is very hot, whisk in potato. Add green onion and potato peels. Whisk well, add sour cream and crumbled bacon. Heat thoroughly. Add cheese a little at a time until all is melted in .
  • Note: You can set aside a bit of the bacon, green onions and cheese to sprinkle on top for a nice appearance.
  • Enjoy!
