9 baking potatoes
2/3 c. butter
2/3 c. all-purpose flour
6 c. whole milk
1/2 Tbsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 c. bacon bits, divided
4 green onions, chopped
10 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
1-8 oz. container sour cream

Poke potatoes with a fork and cook in the microwave, 3 or 4 at a time, and scoop out the flesh (while the others are cooking).

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook about a minute. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in potatoes, salt, pepper, 1/3 c. bacon bits, 2 Tbsp green onions and most of the cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in sour cream and heat through. Serve topped with remaining bacon, onions and cheese.
