Just wanted to comment on the statement's about the potatoes taking longer to bake. My mother gave me this tip. Get a "clean" carpenters nail, insert nail into unbaked potato, leave in and proceed to bake. It takes about half as long to bake with the nail in the potato then without it. :-)

Please be careful about using a "clean" carpenter's nail. It might be squeakly clean, but still coated with something that was never intended to go into your food! Specialty stores offer a tool that holds 4 potatoes upright, impaling them each with a food grade aluminum spike. Otherwise, forget about using a nail, and cook longer.

This is my husbands favorite recipe. I've been making it for years. I add either sour cream or cream cheese to the mixture. It is sooo good that way. Also, I put chives on top of the cheese of a few for my husband and myself (the kids don't like chives). Also, for a family of 5, I have to make about 6 whole potatoes, which gives me 12 halfs. They go really fast.
