Expert Tips

The stuffed potatoes can be covered and refrigerated before baking; increase the baking time to 30 minutes. Or wrap airtight and freeze; bake about 40 minutes.

If doubling the recipe, you can easily bake 12 potatoes at once, but prepare the filling for 6 potatoes at a time so that you can thoroughly blend the ingredients.
