Cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes
These yummy, cheesy twice baked potatoes are a cinch to make and popular with everyone.
The recipe specifies broiling the potatoes for the "twice baked" part of the recipe, but they can be cooked on the grill too.
On the flat top of each potato slice off a thin slice of peel and potato. Slice off most of the top peel of the potato. Scoop out most of the inside of the potatoes and place in a bowl. Leave a thin layer of potato to the shell to make sure it will hold when you put the potato back into it.
Sauté onions in butter. Add the onions, butter and cream to the potato mixture and beat until smooth. Whip the egg whites until stiff and fold into the potato mixture. Fill the potato shells. Sprinkle the top of the potato with paprika and cheese. Broil under low heat until the cheese melts.
Garnish with chopped green onion. Serve as is or with sour cream or salsa.
Makes 6 servings.

Just cook them alongside anything else you are cooking.
One of the things that makes this recipe easy on the cook is that they can be made a bit ahead. Bake the potatoes ahead, even the day before if you want (although they are best the same day). Put the stuffed baked potatoes together a few hours ahead and just bake them when you are ready.
Remember though that if you are using whipped egg white, which is optional in this recipe, you must refrigerate the potatoes if you are going to leave them out for any duration, especially in warm weather. Still, it's good to know they can be prepared ahead if need be.
