Very tasty, and pretty, too! I had two HUGE Yukon Golds, so I baked them for about 1 1/2 hours because we like a thick skin. Then I followed the recipe, using fresh chives from my garden rather than the green onion. I made them ahead and took Pam's advice, baked them for about 15 minutes (b/c of the raw egg), and then put on the parmesan and broiled for about 5 minutes. Great recipe, Anni!
Oh my!!!! These were awesome!! I made 4 instead of 6 and when re-stuffing the shells, it came out to 7 halves. I did put them back in the oven to bake for 15 minutes after stuffing them due to the egg. I then added the parm and broiled them for about 5 minutes. I did use my hand mixer to beat the potatoes to be fluffy. My dh loved them. He's looking forward to the leftovers in his lunch this week.
