  • Bake until very soft when squeezed, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • While potatoes bake, stir together butter, miso, and scallion until combined.
  • Slit hot potatoes lengthwise and, using oven mitts, push in sides to puff up potato.

  • Scallion butter can be made 4 days ahead and chilled, covered.
  • Bring to warm room temperature and stir before using.
