Ingredients

4 large baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
1-1/2 quarts milk
Salt and pepper to taste
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup sour cream
2 cups crisp bacon, crumbled
5 ounces cheddar cheese, grated

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake potatoes until fork tender. Melt butter in medium saucepan. Slowly blend in flour with a wire whisk until thoroughly blended. Gradually add milk to the butter-flour mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in salt and pepper and simmer over low heat, stirring constantly. Cut potatoes in half, scoop out the flesh and set aside. Chop half the potato peels and discard the remainder. When milk mixture is very hot, whisk in potato flesh. Add green onions and potato peels. Whisk well. Add sour cream and bacon pieces. Heat thoroughly. Add cheese a little at a time until melted.
