Ingredients:  
4 large potatoes
1/2 stick butter (no substitute)
8 - 12 oz. sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
real bacon bits (not artificial)
cheddar cheese or colby-jack cheese, shredded

Directions:
Directions:
Bake 4 potatoes till completely done, either in oven or microwave. Cool on counter for about 5 minutes (no longer) so that you can work with the potatoes without burning your hands. Using a sharp knife, cut off the top fourth of each potato. Leaving shell intact, scoop out the potato pulp into mixing bowl of electric mixer. Add in any potato you can scrape from the tops you cut off. Add butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix for about 1 minutes till most lumps removed. (Note: if you wait to long to mix ingredients and potatoes have cooled too much, the mixture will become gummy rather than fluffy at this point). Spoon potato mixture back into potato shells and sprinkle a lot of bacon bits on top of each potato. Place potatoes on baking sheet, heat in 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes to warm. Remove from oven, sprinkle tops with shredded cheese and return to oven until cheese melts, about another 5 minutes. A great side dish any time you have steak.
