      Once potatoes are done, remove and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
    • 5

      Cut each potato lengthwise, creating long halves. Use a small spoon to scoop out about 70% of the potato to make a boat, keeping a thick layer of potato near skin.
    • 6

      Place excess potato in a bowl and reserve. Lightly mash extra potato with a fork; add butter, sour cream, 1/2 cup cheese and season with salt and pepper.
    • 7

      Take the potato skins and fill with potato mixture, then sprinkle with extra cheese and bacon.
    • 8

      Place back on grill for about 10 minutes or until warm and cheese has melted. Garnish with green onions and extra sour cream. Enjoy!
