In and Out Potatoes

Cheese of choice (american, cheddar, even Velveeta to be honest…it melts well)

Bake potatoes at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes directly on the over rack until baked through.
While baking potatoes, make a cheese sauce by melting 2 tablespoons of butter and about a 1/4 cup of milk, melt in cheese until sauce is creamy and a medium thickness (it shouldn`t pour super easily, but not so thick you can`t pour it at all).  Stir frequently while melting the cheese on a low heat to avoid burning.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
When potatoes are baked, cut in 1/2 and scoop insides into a bowl.  Mash the potatoes and add cheese sauce.  Re-stuff skins with potatoes mixture and bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned (15-20 minutes).  If you want to prepare ahead, place in refrigerator before final baking stage and bake when ready.
