Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake potatoes for about an hour. Meanwhile, lay the bacon on a baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 25 minutes. Remove, cool and crumble.

When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half, in a canoe shape, and use a spoon to scoop the flesh into a large bowl, leaving a 1/4-inch shell. Combine the potato flesh with sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 the green onions. Mash until well blended. Use the mixture to fill up potato skins, topping each “boat” with the remaining cheese, green onions and bacon. Bake for another 15 minutes.
