How To Make Double Cheese Twice Baked Potato

4 large baking potatoes (Russet Potatoes)
1/2 cup of sour cream
1 cup of American cheese, diced
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 pound of bacon
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
4 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup of milk (cold)
Preheat oven to 400F (Do not microwave–Please)
Bake the potatoes for 1 hour or until they are fork tender or easy to squeeze in the middle
While the potato is baking you can dice the bacon and saute in a pan until cooked. Remove the bacon from the pan and reserve the fat
Now you will need to cook the red and yellow diced onions in the bacon fat until they are soft
Set the bacon and onions aside
When the potatoes are done remove from the oven, set them aside until they have cooled enough where you can handle them
Now that the potatoes are cool enough to handle: Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop all of the pulp into a large bowl. Be careful not to poke through the shells.
Stir in the sour cream and milk to the potato mixture
Mix in the American Cheese, onions, and most of the bacon. You are going to keep some of the bacon in reserve for a topping on the potatoes
Spoon the mixture back into 4 of the potato shell halves. The potatoes shouldn’t be flat in the shells, they should look like a mound
Place the potatoes back in the oven and bake for 1/2 hour
Remove the potatoes from the oven and sprinkle the cheddar cheese, scallions, and remaining bacon on top of the potatoes.
Bake for 5 more minutes
