  • 2 pounds russet potatoes , about 6 medium-size
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 slices bacon , cooked and chopped
  • 5 green onions , chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash potatoes and prick them with a fork or knife. 
  • Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until they are fork tender. Remove from the oven and cool completely. 
  • At this point you can peel all of them, or peel half of them and leave the skin on the other half to get a real baked potato feel. Cut the potatoes into small, pieces.
  • Combine the sour cream and mayonnaise in a bowl and stir well. 
  • Add the potatoes to a large serving bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Add the sauce (just enough to coat them well--you may not use it all) and gently stir to coat. 
  • Add most of the bacon, onion and cheese, reserving some for topping at the end, and gently stir to combine.
