      This is an excellent recipe! A little trick I use is to put the potatoe shells in the oven before stuffing them for a few minutes so they get quite crisp and then fill them and continue as in your recipe. Thanks for reminding me I haven't made these for some time

      After reading the other reviewers comments I decided to leave out the egg. I used a Sharp Cheddar cheese and it tasted great! I took Bergy's advice and crisped up the skins a little in the oven before filling them. Great idea!

      I really like the texture the egg delivers on these potatoes, they were very light and fluffy. The flavor however, was lacking. I topped the potatoes with bacon and cheddar and it still wasn't enough to redeem them. Next time I will add a strong cheddar to the potatoe mash and hope for better results. A good base recipe.
