You can also twice-bake little fingerling potatoes, and they’ll look just like miniature baked potatoes. The round shape of Yukon Golds, however, makes those potatoes much easier to hollow out.
Make Ahead Tips
You can stuff the potatoes up to two days ahead as long as you wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate them; bring them to room temperature before the second baking.

Great recipe and always popular with guests and kids. I saute shallots in bacon fat then add the potato to mash and add the sour cream , cheese and bacon. YUMMY
These tasted wonderful (I did up the cremefraiche a little because my potato seemed dry). Do plan for plenty of time to scoop out the potatoes even if you use a Mellon baller. This dish was the talk of the dinner because they were so cute and tasted so good.
These are good, and I have made them several times, but there's always something about them that is just a little bit off, that keeps them from being really great. Definitely worth trying, though, can be a bit of work to put them together.
I have made this recipe many times for parties and it's always a big hit.I use a melon baller to scoop out the potatoes. Then after mashing and mixing with other ingredients, I scoop it into a plastic bag and pipe it directly into the hollowed out potatoes. This method goes a lot faster than spooning it in and they come out looking nicer.
