My first attempt at these did not go so well. I practically shredded the skins while scooping, and since I didn't seem to microwave them enough (or mash them with the rest of the stuff well enough) when I baked them I had large, uncooked potato chunks. Ugh. My 2nd attempt went much better. I had two medium (almost large) potatoes that I microwaved for 7 minutes (together) and took my time with the scooping. I also made a point to mash the potato scoopings a little bit when mixing. My only two complaints: 1. With all the alfredo sauce and cheese added, I wound up throwing away about 1/3 of the mix, even with overfilling. Maybe it would work better with a larger shell (as in just a slice out of the top...so there is more space to overfill) 2. They were almost a little bit bland. More cheese, more pepper...I don't know. I will try again, though!
