Source: Unknown, shared by Andrew Welker

4 Large Baking Potatoes
2/3 C Butter
2/3 C Flour
6 C Milk
3/4 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
1 (1lb PKG) Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
1 1/4 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 (8oz PKG) Sour Cream
4 Green Onions, Chopped

Wash potatoes and prick with fork. Bake at 400F for 1 hour or until done. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out pulp, set aside.

Melt butter over low heat. Add flour, salt, and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Let sit until bubbly. Add milk a little at a time and whisk until smooth. Let cook until it gets thick and bubbly.

Add potato pulp and additional salt and pepper if needed. Stir in 2 T of green onion, 1/2 C bacon, and 1 C of cheese. Stir in sour cream and additional milk if too thick. Heat through. Garnish with remaining onion, bacon, and cheese.

Notes: This was good with 4oz of cream cheese melted in and i used as much of the bacon grease as possible rather than all the butter.
