BAKE THE POTATOES:

Use a tea towel to hold the hot potato, and scoop out the inside of the potato with a spoon into a medium mixing bowl. Take care not to tear the potato skins.

PREPARE THE FILLING:
Add sour cream, onion, parsley, blue cheese, butter, salt and pepper and mix with a hand mixer, adding as much milk as necessary to make the potato mixture creamy but firm. Now fill the potato shells, using the tines of a fork to fluff up the potatoes. Place all the potatoes on a baking sheet and put them in the hot oven for 15 minutes.
