  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prick potatoes all over with a fork or sharp knife and wrap tightly in foil. Bake until soft, about 1 hour.
  2. Unwrap potatoes and cut lengthwise slits in the top of each. Carefully scoop out flesh from the centre of each potato into a medium bowl. Add butter, sour cream, chives, the scallion whites, half the cheddar, and half the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon filling back into each potato, mounding it on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and return to oven until melted, about 5 minutes. Top with scallion greens and remaining bacon.
