This is one of our favorite side dishes. There really isn't a recipe, although I'm sure you could google one. We just bake the potatoes and, while they're still warm, cut them in half and scoop out the insides. We mash the potatoes with milk, butter, cheese, sour cream, green onions, Ranch dressing, bacon bits, etc. (whatever we feel like, and until it looks right) and then scoop the mixture back into the shells. At this point they freeze quite nicely. Then, just before serving, pop them back into the oven until they're heated through again. A sprinkle of paprika looks pretty.
