Salt and pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
3 strips bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
8 stuffed green olives
2 tablespoons chopped pimento
2 teaspoons horseradish
Preheat oven to 400°. Scrub potatoes, prick with a fork to allow steam to escape and bake 1 to 1 ¼ hours until done. Cut thin slice from tops of potatoes. Leaving a thin wall, scoop out insides and mash with sour cream, milk and all but 1 tablespoon butter. Season with salt and pepper. Divide mashed potatoes into 5 equal portions. Portion 1: Add onions, sauteed in reserved butter. Portion 2: Add bacon. Portion 3: Add cheese. Portion 4: Add 6 chopped olives (reserve 2 for garnish). Portion 5: Add pimento and horseradish. Stuff 3 shells with each of these fillings. Place in a flat storage container and wrap for freezing or freeze on a flat pan and place in plastic bags when completely frozen. Serving day: bake unthawed potatoes at 375 oven 30 minutes. Brown under broiler last 5 minutes – watch carefully to prevent burning.
