Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Slice off a thin strip of each potato so it lies flat. Place potatoes on the baking sheet and brush with a teaspoon of olive oil. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until very tender when pierced with a fork.Remove from oven and set aside to cool enough to handle but still warm. Increase oven temp to 450 degrees.
With a small spoon, scoop out the potatoes' insides into a mixing bowl, leaving a 1/4 inch shell of the potato. Be careful not to break the skins. To the potato flesh, make mashed potatoes as you like with sour cream, parmesan cheese, chives and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Divide evenly among the potato skins.
Return the stuffed potatoes to the baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until potatoes are heated and golden. You may add cheddar or another type of cheese to your potatoes. You may also mix in leftover cooked broccoli, bacon, sauteed mushrooms or spinach for a change of pace. Enjoy!
