Loaded Baked Potato salad

I haven't made this one yet but I can't wait, it looks so yummy and easy. It is suppose to serve 20 so you will want to cut back on the the servings sizes.

7 pounds baking potatoes
extra virgin olive oil fro brushing
2 pounds bacon, cut crosswise into 1 inch pieces
2 sticks (1/2 pound) butter, softened
2 pints sour cream
salt and pepper
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1 pound cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce the potatoes with a fork; brush with oil. Bake until tender, 1 hour. let cool, then cut into bite size pieces.

In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp about 10 minutes, drain. ( the microwave works just as well, about one minute for every piece.

In a large bowl, combine the butter and sour cream; season with salt and pepper, stir in the potatoes, bacon, scallions and cheese. Serve at room temperature.
