This is nothing what it sounds like so beware, if you are looking for regular baked potatoes this is not for you. This is a terrific and tasty appetizer and it looks great. These are great make ahead, read through first. Time includes baking the potatoes twice. If you desire once they are done you can cut each one in half again, do not do this before you fill and bake again, it's too hard because they are too small to work with.
