Twice Baked Potatoes

8 Potatoes (large baking size)
2 sticks Butter
1 cup Sour Cream
2 cups Cheddar Cheese
1 cup Bacon (fried and crumbled into bits)
1/4 tsp Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Black Pepper
1 Green Onion

Wash, then place 8 naked potatoes on a cookie sheet (the reason you bake them "naked" is so the skin will be nice and firm and strong enough to hold the filling later). Bake in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour, 15 minutes, making sure they’re sufficiently cooked through.
Slice 2 sticks of butter into pats. Place them into a large mixing bowl.
Put bacon bits into the bowl with the butter. Add 1 cup sour cream.
After potatoes finishing baking remove from oven, within a few minutes after you remove the baked potatoes from the oven, you need to begin scraping them out. Potatoes will be hot so make a little cradle with a dish towel, and use it to hold the little hot potatoes.With a sharp serrated knife cut each potato in half lengthwise.
Now, with a large spoon, begin scraping out the insides into the bowl. Keep scraping, being careful not to tear the shell. You should leave just a little bit in there for support, but try to remove most of it. Lay the hollowed out potato shells on a cookie sheet.
Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes with the other ingredients.
Measure 1/4 tsp. Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and add it to the bowl.
Now add about 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese and mix it in well. Add black pepper. Cut the end off of one green onion and slice about 2/3 of it.
Put them into the bowl and mix them in. IMPORTANT: If you plan to freeze the twice baked potatoes, do NOT add green onion.
Scoop out some of the potato filling from bowl and begin filling the shells.
Keep going until the filling’s all gone. You might have a shell or two left over, and that’s okay.
Now top each potato with more grated cheddar cheese and put them in a 350-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potato is warmed through.
Or, you could refrigerate them for up to three days until you wanted to serve, OR you could freeze them in Ziploc bags, just as long as you skipped the green onion step.
