Beef and Potato Boats

4 large baking potatoes (8 to 10 ounces each)
2 tablespoons butter
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
Dash pepper
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Wash potato skins and prick with a fork. Bake at 400 for 60-70 minutes or until tender; cool. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato. Carefully scoop out the pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and milk; set aside.

In a large saucepan cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Cool 10 minutes. Add bacon, sour cream and remaining salt.

Spoon into potato shells. Top each with a fourth of the mashed potato mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Place potatoes on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Makes 4 servings.
