Bake potatoes at 350 for 65-75 minutes or until tender. Cool completely. Peel and cube potatoes. In a stock pot, melt butter; stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Simmer, stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat. Whisk in sour cream. Add potatoes and green onions. Garnish with bacon/ham and cheese. Heat till hot, do not boil. If too thick, add more milk
