Directions

  1. Bake the potatoes at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Cool.
  2. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell.
  3. In a bowl, mash the pulp with butter. Stir in milk, bacon, 1 cup of cheese, chives, salt, and pepper. I have found that using the full cup of milk makes the mixture too runny. I usually start with a scant 1/2 cup and then add more if necessary.
  4. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
