31 Days of Comfort Food: Day 13, Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Welcome to day 13 of 31 Days of Comfort Food!
If you're looking for more culinary comfort, you can check out the rest of the series here.
Today's dish is a great addition to any meal, but I love it for barbecues and potlucks. The prep can be done ahead of time, making it easy to just heat and enjoy.
Stuffed Baked Potatoes
5 medium baking potatoes
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 T. snipped chives
1 clove garlic, minced
Crumbled cooked bacon and 
chopped green onions
Bake potatoes at 400 for 1 hour or till tender. Reduce heat to 375. Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a large mixing bowl, beat the pulp with the butter. Stir in 1 cup of cheese, sour cream, ranch mix, chives, and garlic. Spoon into shells. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. 
Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or till heated through. Top with bacon and green onions.
