Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

I love making these twice baked potatoes. Originally, I got the recipe for Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes from allrecipes.com, but really...you don't even need a recipe for this! I used the same ingredients, just subbing half and half for the milk, but didn't measure anything.

First, I cooked 10-12 potatoes in the microwave (not all at once), and then put them in the fridge to cool. Once cooled, I cut each in half and scooped out all but 1/4 inch of potato from the skins. In a bowl, I mixed sour cream, chopped green onions, crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, tiny bit of butter, and half and half with the potatoes until it was creamy, but not too thick or thin. I made up several bags for the freezer, each with 4 potato halves.
I baked some of them up when we had meatloaf the other night and they were so good! Very creamy and flavorful. I think I baked them at 375 for about 20-30 minutes. You can eat as is, or top with a little extra something. I put a small spoon our sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese on top.

Those look delicious! My aunt makes those all the time. I guess it's time for me to make them too.
