Ingredients

• 2 large baking potatoes

• ½ pound lean bacon

• ¾ cup shredded mild Cheddar cheese

• ½ cup sour cream

• ¼ cup milk

• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

• ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Preparation

• Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch casserole dish.

 • Poke a few holes into each potato using a toothpick.

• Bake potatoes in the preheated oven until fully cooked, about 1 hour. Cool for about 15 minutes.

• Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the Bacon slices on paper towels and crumble.

• Cut a thin slice from one side of each potato; carefully scoop out the flesh and transfer to a bowl. Discard skins. Mix 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese, sour cream, milk, butter, chives, salt, black pepper and garlic powder with potatoes. Spread potato mixture into the prepared casserole dish; top with ¾ cheddar cheese and crumble bacon.

• Bake in the preheated oven until just bubbling, 20to 25 minutes. Cool for at least 5 minutes before serving
