4 large baking potatoes
1 pound sliced bacon, diced
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup diced American cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 green onions, finely sliced

Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until tender.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp; remove to paper towels.  Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings- in the drippings, saute red and yellow onions until tender; set aside.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise.  Scoop out pulp; leaving an 1/8 in shell.  In a mixing bowl, beat the pulp, sour cream and milk until creamy.  Stir in sauteed onions, American cheese and 1 cup of bacon.  Spoon into potato shells.

Place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, green onions and remaining bacon.  Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

Yield:  8 servings
