1/3 cup half and half
1 cup sour cream
3 T. green onions or chives, minced
4 strips bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 - 2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced and sauteed in butter
Bake potatoes for one hour at 350° or until tender in center.
Cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out potato carefully as to not tear skins. Mash potatoes with mixer, add half and half and continue to beat until smooth. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Mixture should be somewhat softer than regular mashed potatoes to prevent drying out when baking again. Fill skin shells with mashed potato mixture and arrange on cookie sheet. Top each with extra grated cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
