Tony's Taters

These potatoes are a nice change from baked potatoes and twice baked potatoes. My family, especially Tony- LOVES LOVES LOVES them!

5 -6 large baking potatoes
6 green onions, diced
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
5 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 T flour
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and dice potatoes and place in large pot covered with water. Bring to a boil and continue boiling until potatoes are tender and fall apart when poked with a fork. Drain potatoes. In large bowl mix together sour cream, milk, flour, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Stir in potatoes and mix well. Pour in 9 x 13 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: Instead of buying regular bacon, buy peppered bacon for extra flavor. To make a small amount of bacon for a recipe such as this, instead of cooking it on the stove in a frying pan- dice bacon before cooking and place on a heavy duty paper plate. Cover with a paper towel and cook in the microwave for 4 minutes or until done.
