  1. Bake potatoes at 375 degrees F for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato; scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a bowl, mash the pulp, egg, milk, mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon into potato shells. Top with onion, bacon and remaining cheese.
  2. Place in a small ungreased baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

I followed this recipe to the letter and it was great! If I were REALLY dedicated, I would put the potato mix in a pastry bag and fill the potato shell using a fancy tip. But not necessary, t...

My kids loved them. When I made them I cut the potatoes lengthwise. Another person suggested garlic and I used garlic salt. I also added the remainder cheese during the last 5 minutes of bakin...

BIG HIT with my fiance, she loved them will def. have to make again. great recipe.
