When the potatoes are baked, cut in half and dig out all the potato, reserving the skinMash the potatoes the way you like them. I like to add sour cream, it makes them really creamy. When they are smooth, I add garlic salt, salt, pepper and a little parsley flake.
Spoon the mashed potatoes into the skins and top with cheese. (sidenote: two seconds after this picture I dropped the pan upside down in the oven! I no longer have fingerprints)
Bake at 350 until heated through, about 20 minutes. They are a little worse for the wear because of their fall, but delicious.
This is our main dish and I usually serve with cottage cheese, fruit, and a vegetable.
