DIRECTIONS

  • Generously cover potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt with cold water in a medium pot, then simmer until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain potatoes and rinse with cold water. Cool to room temperature in refrigerator, about 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook garlic in oil at a bare simmer in a small heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 12 minutes.
  • Drain garlic, reserving oil for another use, then mash to a paste.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle.
  • Mince basil, then stir together with garlic paste, cheese, mayonnaise, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Using a small melon-ball cutter or a teaspoon, scoop out a hole in each cooled potato, leaving a 1/4-inch shell.
  • Stuff potatoes with cheese mixture and bake in a pan until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 20 minutes.
