twice baked potatoes

pretty easy, though a little time consuming in places:

four 8-10 ounce potatoes
1/4-1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
garlic salt
black pepper
about a cup of shredded cheese
two green onions, chopped

poke holes in the potatoes and microwave each for about 6 minutes or until tender when stuck with a fork. Cool in the fridge.
Slice cool potatoes in half, and dig out the insides, leaving a 1/4 inch shell. Save shells on sheet pan. Smash up the potato insides with an electric mixer, add milk until soft and fluffy. Add butter, pepper, garlic salt to taste (it takes more than you think), and cheese, whip together. Toss in onions and mix. Spoon goo back into shells and bake at 400* for twenty minutes.
EXTRA SPECIAL BIT: before baking, if you are cool with that sort of thing, bacon pieces on top makes an awfully nice touch. Next time I will probably stir the bacon right into the goop.
