    I tried some at a friends house and thought they were homemade. They were so good and cheesy and flavorful, then she told me she got them at Ralphs grocery store in the deli section.

    I take the insides of the potatoes out and put in the mixer bowl. I add lots of butter, salt, white pepper, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, celery seeds and milk to desired consistency. I don't like cheese, but if you do you can add shredded cheese. I would think white cheddar. Just taste the mashed potato mixture to make sure it is seasoned enough. You can also add less milk and some sour cream. Then I scoop the insides back in the skins with a spoon or you can pipe it. I top each potato half with sprinkled paprika and parsley and a pat of butter, then bake 350ยบ for 20 minutes or so until hot. Very yummy!

    Thanks for all of your suggestions! I added crumbled bacon, sour cream, cream cheese, butter and egg, salt and pepper and topped them off with cheddar cheese. The only problem was I let the pulp set to long and when it got cold they were hard to mash, a little lumpy, but otherwise ok.

    I make them all the time--a family favorite. It is best if you bake the potatoes without wrapping in foil--that way the skins firm up and are more forgiving. cut a small piece off the top of the potato and scoop the insides out with a small spoon--leaving a "wall" of potato inside. Mash the potatoes while still warm to prevent lumps. I add ranch dressing, green onions, cheddar cheese and bacon bits. If needed to, thin the potatoes with warm milk. Spoon back into the skins,top with more cheese and bake until heated thru. My family loves these--the ranch dressing really helps get the seasoning right. HTH Deb

    i usually make these for the holidays -- similar to lisa from nj for white potatoes and I also make twice baked sweet potatoes (just follow a mashed sweet potato recipe for the filling) i freeze them for a week or so; allowing me to make them ahead of time

    they are both very well received and gobbled up!
