Cheesy potatoes that will knock your socks off

I grew up eating potatoes at nearly every meal.  I love them pretty much any way you can make them, boiled, fried, baked, mashed.  Ummm mmm, good eats for me.  When you add cheese and green onions, they just go to a different level.  Some call them funeral potatoes, other crack potatoes.  Whatever you call them, my family calls them yummy.  Enjoy this recipe.  It is easy to make and very inexpensive.  When you are looking to bulk up your dinner, think potatoes.  They only cost around .12 ea and they are good for you.

6 Potatoes, scrubbed
2 Green onions, diced
1/2c Sour Cream
1Can, Cream of Chicken Soup
4Tbs milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/4c Chedder cheese grated and divided
1/4c Bread Crumbs
2Tbs Olive Oil

Scrub potatoes and place in a 400 Degree oven for 30 minutes.  Turn off after time is done and leave in oven for another 30 minutes.  Cool until you can handle.  Grate into a a bowl and add seasonings, green onion, soup, sour cream, 1 c of cheese and milk.  Stir until combined.  If too thick, add another Tbs of milk.  Place in greased casserole dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs and then drizzle oil over top.
