Scrubb potatoes, dry, then pierce with fork several times. Arrange
on a baking sheet and bake in 375 degree oven for about 1 hour or
until tender. Let stand until cook enough to handle. Cut potatoes in
half lengthwise and scoop out centers, leaving 1/8" potato in shell.
Cover. Chill shells up to 2 days until ready to use for the skins.
If desired, add the 1/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup butter, salt & pepper to use
potato centers as mashed potatoes.
When ready to prepare skins, melt the 1/3 cup butter. Brush shells
with the butter, inside and out. Place, cut side up, on baking
sheet. Bake in a 500 degree oven for 20 minutes or until brown and
Distribute some bacon, onion, and cheese in each shell. Bake just
until cheese melts. Serve hot. If the potatoes are large, you may
want to cut in half crosswise before serving.
