      1/3   c            Milk
      1/4   c            Butter

      Scrub potatoes, dry, then pierce with fork several
   times. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake in 375 oven
   for about 1 hour or until tender. Let stand until cook
   enough to handle. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and
   scoop out center, leaving 1/8 potato in shell. Cover.
   Chill shells up to 2 days until ready to use for the
   skins.
      If desired, add the 1/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup butter,
   salt and pepper to potato centers to use for mashed
   potatoes.
      When ready to prepare skins, melt the 1/3 cup
   butter. Brush shells with the butter, inside and out.
   Place, cut side up, on baking sheet. Bake in a 500
   oven for 10 minutes or until brown and crisp.
      Distribute some bacon, onion and cheese in each
   shell. Bake just until cheese melts.  Serve hot.  If
   the potatoes are large, you may want to cut in half
   crosswise before serving.
