Potato Boats

4 large baking potatoes
4 slices bacon
3/4 lb. ground beef
3 green onions, chopped and/or dried chives
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sour cream
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 c. grated Chedder cheese

Bake potatoes for about an hour, or until tender. Cook bacon, drain, and crumble. In a fry pan, cook ground beef and onion until beef is barely pink. Remove from heat and add sour cream and bacon. Stir. Make a large slit in top of potato and scoop out center, being careful not to break shells. Place shells in a shallow baking pan. In a large bowl, mash potatoes. Add salt, butter, and just enough milk to make them creamy, but still stiff. Fold hamburger mixture into mashed potatoes. Spoon into potato shells and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
