Twice Baked Potatoes

A favorite family side dish!
Large russet potatoes
bacon, cooked and crumbled
Sausage, cooked
Green onions, sliced/chopped
Mild cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Note: I didn't specify amounts because it really depends on your taste. You decide how much you want of each ingredient (if it was up to my husband they would have a TON of sausage and bacon).
Wash potatoes, cover them with aluminum foil and bake. When potatoes are ready, remove the foil and cut an opening on each potato. You then take a spoon and scoop out as much baked potato as possible, place the potato filling in a bowl. Make sure you leave some close to the skin or the skin will collapse. You want the potatos to keep their shape, like in the picture below.
You can also just cut the potatoes in half (easier) and remove the filling, again, leave some along the skin. Once you have scooped all the potato filling and it's ready in a bowl, proceed to add butter, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix well, you want the potatoes to be creamy. When the potatoes are ready, add the sausage, bacon and green onions and mix well.
Stuff the potato shells with the filling you just made. Be generous, because you will have a lot of filling. Top with cheese and return back to the oven. Bake at 350 degrees farenheit for about 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
Also, if you'd rather just put the potatoes on a baking dish, you can do that as well, that's what I did with all the extra.
