I buy large baking potatoes for this recipe, but you can just use the biggest ones from a bag and cut them in half after they are baked. Using this recipe and 4 large potatoes we served 8 people. They can be made ahead of time and do the final cooking right before serving. You could add bacon bits, sour cream, anything you might put in your own mashed potatoes. Enjoy. jea MN
