  • 8 baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • Canola oil
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup minced chives
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • Paprika


  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with butter. Stir in the chives, salt, pepper and enough milk to obtain desired consistency. Spoon into potato shells; sprinkle with paprika.
  3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 20-30 minutes or until heated through. (Potatoes may be stuffed ahead and refrigerated or frozen. Allow additional time for reheating.)
