[twice baked potatoes]

Medium to large potato (1 per person)
Vegetable oil
Milk (2 tbsp per potato)
Garlic powder
Grated cheese (like Colby Jack, at least 3 tbsp per potato)
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash potato prick holes in it with a fork (about 8 stabs per potato). Rub each potato all over with a little oil. Place the potato right on the oven rack (no pan) and bake for 45-60 minutes. (You should be able to tell when it's done by grabbing it with an oven mitt, a little soft, squeezable).

Adjust oven to 350 degrees.

Let potato cool for 5 minutes. Cut top 1/4 of less from potato, lengthwise. Scoop out the potato's insides and put into medium sized bowl. Reserve skin. Mix potato, milk, a couple dashes of garlic powder, a dash of dill, some of the cheese (save a little), salt and pepper. Mash until it's lumpy but well mixed. Adjust seasonings to your liking.

Put potato mixture back into the potato skin, packing it in but letting it overfill. Put it into a baking dish and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.

Put into 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. It's done when the cheese is melted to your liking.

When you've removed after the cheese is melted, cut a small 1-inch cut into the top of each and place 1/3 tbsp of butter in each. Serve while hot.
