  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash potatoes and poke with a fork. Bake potatoes in oven 1 hour or microwave until soft. Allow to cool slightly.

  2. Slice each potato in 1/2 lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp of the potato leaving a 1/8" shell.

  3. In a bowl, mash potatoes, sour cream, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper until smooth. Add butter milk as needed to create a creamy texture. Stir in chives, bacon and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese.

  4. Fill each skin with the mashed potato filling and top with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
