Double Stuffed Mashed Potatoes

These are one of our favorites!
Double Stuffed Mashed Potatoes
4 large baking potatoes
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

½ c. chopped onion
¾ c. cheddar cheese
¼ c. sour cream
2 tsp. dried chives
Garlic Salt and pepper to taste

Bake potatoes in microwave.  Meanwhile, Melt butter in skillet. Add onions and cook until translucent.

Slice an oval 'V' shape in the top of each potato. Scoop out the insides through the 'V', keeping shells intact; and place pulp in a medium bowl. Mash potato pulp; add onion, ½ c. cheese, sour cream, chives, salt and pepper.  For creamier consistency, add milk until desired texture is reached. 

Spoon potato mixture into shells. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and paprika.

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Then toast lightly under broiler until desired crispiness.
