Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Scrub Idaho® Russet Potatoes until clean and dry them. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are cooked through. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly. Lower oven temperature to 375 degrees F.
Cut potatoes lengthwise about 3/4 of the way through, leaving them attached on the bottom. Scrape the insides of potatoes with a spoon into a large mixing bowl. Add butter, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash together or whip with an electric mixer, depending on your desired texture.
Spoon filling into potato shells and place on a baking sheet. Toss cooked ground beef with barbecue sauce and spoon equally over potatoes. Sprinkle each potato with remaining cheese, bacon, and green onions.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
